The Bluebird Brooch: A Dual-Timeline Mystery

A new book by Rosemary Noble

A betrayed and lonely young woman. An old lady locked in silence and regret. The ghosts of mothers who made their own choices, but what choice did they have?

When her controlling boyfriend runs out on her, Laura believes she must pick up the pieces alone. But Peggy, her grandmother, has been waiting for over two decades to meet her. Peggy refused to die, refused to give up, sensing that Laura will need her one day.

It takes the death of Peggy’s sister for the two to finally find each other, with Laura feeling an inexplicable, instant connection. It’s a meeting that will send Laura off on a journey to discover her family story and what happened to Rose, an ancestor, who disappeared without trace, leaving her five-year-old daughter (Peggy’s grandmother) to a lifetime of grief.

Laura travels ten thousand miles to fit the last piece of the jigsaw in place. She discovers one more astonishing secret that will change both Laura’s and Peggy’s lives.

Can Laura Grey dare to take risks? Can she learn to forgive? Can she learn to love without reservation?

A heart-warming story of love and loss across decades and continents.

For lovers of Long-Lost Family, of family sagas and genealogical mysteries.
