Honor’s Shadow

Honor and Madalena were rivals for the love of Thomas when they were young. Now middle aged, secrets of the past have returned to haunt them, stirring up Honor’s desire for vengeance. Both women struggle to maintain control, as their lives become intertwined once more.

A series of events (a painful anniversary, a new psychotherapy client, a photo of Madalena’s daughter in a newspaper), have awakened disturbing memories in Honor. Through her work with Tisi, her strange new client, and her memory of a painful betrayal, she tries to work out what is driving her own unusual behaviour. Her efforts to contain the vengeful impulses of both Tisi and herself are failing. A Greek myth provides a chance to prevent disaster; and ultimately reveals to Honor the drive behind her own desire for revenge.

A letter jolts Madalena’s life of comfort and security. Someone thinks they know something about Madalena’s past that could destroy her carefully constructed life. She is desperate to find out whom, and a new friend helps her to think about who might have sent the letter. Her visits to old enemies become a journey of self discovery, as she attempts to maintain control of her life in the face of danger.
