"Katharine Swartz weaves an enthralling dual timeline story with a unique premise. I was truly captivated by this heart-wrenching novel" – Suzanne Kelman, Amazon International Bestselling author of A View Across the Rooftops

Marine archaeologist Rachel Gardener is thrilled to be summoned to the coast of Cumbria to investigate a newly discovered shipwreck. She is also relieved to escape the tensions of her troubled marriage, and to be closer to her ailing mother.

But when a mysteriously sunken ship is discovered to be a slaving ship from the 1700s, Rachel is determined to explore the town of Whitehaven’s link to the slave trade and soon she learns of Abigail Fenton, the young wife of a slave trader, who has a surprising secret of her own. The more Rachel learns about Abigail, the more she wonders if the past can inform the present… Can Rachel learn from Abigail and break free from her troubled history and embrace the future she longs to claim for her own?

Reviews for The Widow’s Secret

'A book to keep you up at night, turning the pages. The author skilfully moves between two protagonists. She brings alive with her writing a past in which racism was the norm and one’s conscience was the only ethical guide. Both protagonists are three-dimensional, and the reader is drawn into their dilemmas and can feel the changes they are going through.' Sharon Maas
