The Sweetest Poison
When life has cast you in the role of victim, how do you find the strength to fight back?
When she was eight years old, Helen Clack was bullied so mercilessly that she was driven to a desperate act. Now she is being targeted once more, but this time the identity of her tormentor is shrouded in doubt.
When her life starts to disintegrate, she flees home to the wilds of north-east Scotland, and to the one man she knows can help her – Hector Forbes, the dubiously charismatic Laird of Pitfourie, with whom she has been hopelessly in love ever since those hellish days in the school playground, when he was her protector, her rescuer, her eleven-year-old hero.
But can she truly rely on Hector?
And can anyone protect her from the terrible secret she’s keeping?
What They Found
A novella (or very long 'short' story!) that follows on from the events described in The Sweetest Poison. Travel with the characters as they take a road trip from the rural idyll of Pitfourie to spend an interesting August Bank Holiday weekend in Glasgow.
Will they find answers there to all their questions?
Or are there some questions no one had thought of asking?
