The Tyringham Saga

Tyringham Park

Tyringham Park is the Blackshaws magnificent country house in the south of Ireland. It is a haven of wealth and privilege until its peace is shattered by a devastating event which reveals the chaos of jealousy and deceit beneath its surface. Charlotte Blackshaw is only eight years old when her little sister Victoria goes missing from the estate. Charlotte is left to struggle with her loss without any support from her hostile mother and menacing nanny. It is obvious to Charlotte that both of them wish she had been the one to go missing rather than pretty little Victoria.The mystery of Victoria's disappearance continues to cast a long shadow over Tyringham Park - a mystery that may still have the power to destroy its world and the world of all those connected to it.

The Tyringham Saga

Return to Tyringham Park

An admirable doctor in charge of a small, isolated hospital in outback Australia swaps his wife’s second stillborn baby for an identical twin born to an impoverished farmer’s wife who already has seven other children. Both mothers are unaware of the deception. Only one person, apart from the doctor, knows what happened, but no one believes him. The doctor leaves for Ireland immediately afterwards so that his crime, committed on impulse, will remain undetected. The stolen twin is destined for a future of privilege as the heir to her aristocratic mother’s wealth and status, while her sister in Australia faces a life of hardship and loneliness. The differing fortunes of the twins, the doctor’s guilty conscience, the burden of the man who knows, the jealousy of an older sister, the fate of the mothers and the ambitions of the older generation, all combine to create a dramatic and explosive climax.
