If there is only one memory I shall possess,
'Tis your picture of beauty mine eyes did caress.
Nathan Rothwell was the illustrious 70s/80s Crime fiction novellist of his time, who after encountering the portrait of a beautiful Regency peeress attributed to the Suffolk artist John Constable, became obsessed by her radiant beauty to the point of having an emotional breakdown .
Little did he know then, his unnatural compulsion was to bring him back to Lytefoot Hall which was the home of his friend and literary agent, to write a romantic novel based on Constable's beauty that had hung so serenely there for the past two-hundred years.
This is a tale of love and tragedy that spans over two centuries, one of murder, death, jealously and misdemeanour; a longing cry for a loss that would echo to the other side of time...and lead Nathan back to find the one he left behind so very long ago.
