Was their fairy-tale life just an illusion?
Douglas and Julia are celebrating 25 years of happy marriage with a glittering soiree at their magnificent manor house. Then, the arrival of an uninvited guest threatens not only to ruin the night, but potentially to ruin their lives for good. Una-Mary Parker's Secrets of the Night will enthral fans of Penny Jordan and Penny Vincenzi.
We are all conjurors in our own way, Julia thought as she looked at Douglas, the man who had created a fairy tale world for them. But was it an illusion?
It is their wedding anniversary, and Douglas and Julia Rutherford are giving the party of the year. With their family and friends gathered around them, it seems nothing can jeopardise their happiness.
But even Douglas cannot conceal the turmoil caused by the arrival of an uninvited guest, whose revelation of a shameful secret forces them to come to terms with betrayal, a tragic death and a charge of murder from which there is no magical escape.
Their love for each other takes on a new dimension but whether they can survive depends on their ability to face the truth.
