The Colour of Blood Author:Clare Curzon 1921: A young woman wakes in an unfamiliar house with no memory of who she is or where she came from. A child is crying, and instinctively she knows the child is hers, but she doesn't know the identity of the dead man lying in the room next door - or how so much blood came to be staining her dress. — Yet this is only the beginning of the myst... more »ery. For although Lucy Sedgewick is eventually restored to her wealthy family, there is little talk of the events leading up to her disappearance and she has effectively blocked out her whereabouts of those few, crucial weeks. No news reaches her circle of the dead man she saw and she fears that she may have been responsible for a terrible crime. Furthermore, her husband Julian is also missing, and she remembers that hers was not a happy marriage, but surely she could not have been involved in his disappearance too.
