The Hunger Trace
After the sudden death of David Bryant, the charismatic owner of a rambling Derbyshire parkland, three people are left to mourn him in very different ways.
David's young widow, Maggie, struggles with her grief and isolation, the prejudices of suspicious locals, and the threats to the park. Louisa, who lives in the grounds and has harboured an infatuation -- not to mention a dark secret -- with David since her youth, only wants to be left alone with the falcons to whom she has devoted her life, despite Maggie's persistent attempts to forge a friendship. Meanwhile, Christopher, David's eccentric teenage son from an earlier marriage, is attempting to balance his own grief with a yearning for life beyond the estate, and a quest to trace his estranged mother.
In the aftermath of disaster, the various allegiances of this makeshift family will be stretched to breaking point, and Maggie, Louisa and Christopher must each face the decisions which will define them…
