This is Christina's latest novel, published in April 2023.
A THRILLING TALE OF THE UNEXPECTED — and much, much more.
It’s the spring of 1985. In the little Ulster town of Castlebrook two families are undergoing a sea change. On the wealthier side of town, Ellen Purboy is mourning the loss of her beloved husband. Following her doctor’s advice, she advertises for a tenant to occupy a suite of rooms in her stately home. A handsome young man responds, and takes up residence.
On the other side of town, Ma Bryn returns to her old trade of fortune telling. She’s influenced by a new phenomenon that’s sweeping Ireland: scores of people claim to have seen statues of the Virgin Mary moving.
But a dire threat is about to upset this small rural community when Vivienne, the daughter of a Belfast judge, goes missing. At the same time, Mrs Purboy is having to deal with things that go bump in the night in her mansion.
Coincidence? Nothing is what it first seems, as one twist follows another in this heady mix of crime, comedy, romance and retribution.
