When the truth is the worst lie of all … Traumatised after overhearing the shocking truth about her family, nine year-old Violet Grey realises that her entire life has been based on lies. Meanwhile, her mother, Doris, slides towards social isolation as the consequences of bygone secrets begin to manifest themselves in her rebellious daughter's behaviour. When war is declared in 1939, no one can predict the devastating events that will follow. Melody of Raindrops is the story of a mother and daughter, driven apart by the family's patriarch, Tom Jeffson, as he struggles to overcome his recently diagnosed psychopathic disorder. A harrowing tale of misplaced family loyalty, envy and manipulation, will Tom conquer the demons that haunt him, win back the trust of those he has wronged in the past and keep his promises to his wife and daughters? Although the novel is the second book in the Jeffson Family Trilogy, it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone family saga, covering the period 1932 to 1945.
