In early 19th century Durham, Clara finds herself on unfamiliar grounds in her own city. She is engaged to be married to a man she barely knows and is overcome by ominous feelings and bad dreams.Her new life as Nathaniel Chark's wife should be a comfortable one - Nathaniel is a kindly, well-off gentleman who owns several local mines and is besotted with her - but somehow, Clara just cannot shake the bad feelings she is having.But unease becomes disquiet when the miners start to voice their fury over their work conditions. When a female miner is tragically killed by an unexpected explosion in one of the mines, Nathaniel and his household become the targets of several of the townspeople, and Nathaniel seems unwilling to change the way he runs his mines. Clara struggles to find normality in these hostile circumstances, which are quickly becoming more and more intrusive...

Jenny Dawson was a radiographer in the NHS for most of her working life. She lives in Lincolnshire.
