“A decaying castle hides family secrets, three elderly sisters protect those secrets, and a long lost letter finally delivered 50 years later could revel those secrets. The Distant Hours brings the reader a novel steeped in a gothic atmosphere by an author writing a spellbinding story in a classic style not to be missed.”
— Carol Hicks, Bookshelf At Hooligan Rocks, Truckee, CA

A long lost letter arrives in the post and Edie Burchill finds herself on a journey to Milderhurst Castle, a great but moldering old house, where the Blythe spinsters live and where her mother was billeted 50 years before as a 13 year old child during WWII. The elder Blythe sisters are twins and have spent most of their lives looking after the third and youngest sister, Juniper, who hasn't been the same since her fiance jilted her in 1941.

Inside the decaying castle, Edie begins to unravel her mother's past. But there are other secrets hidden in the stones of Milderhurst, and Edie is about to learn more than she expected. The truth of what happened in 'the distant hours' of the past has been waiting a long time for someone to find it.

Morton once again enthralls listeners with an atmospheric story featuring unforgettable characters beset by love and circumstance and haunted by memory, that reminds us of the rich power of storytelling.
