Summary:

After her mother’s suicide, Abbie Myers returns home to the Lake District with her young child—and no wedding ring. Estranged from her turbulent family for many years, Abbie is heartbroken when she hears that they blame her for this tragedy. Determined to uncover her mother’s past, Abbie approaches her beloved grandmother, Millie, in search of answers. The old woman reveals the story of how she travelled to Russia in 1911 as a young governess and became caught up in the revolution. As Abbie struggles to reconcile with her family, and to support herself and her child, she realizes that those long-ago events created aftershocks that threaten to upset the fragile peace she longs to create. Set against the backdrops of the English Lake District in the 1960s and the upheavals of revolutionary Russia,The Amber Keeper is a sweeping tale of jealousy and revenge, reconciliation and forgiveness.

    Interesting plot with lots of twists and surprises, but rather annoying infection in the narrator’s voice.
