Moving between South Africa and London, the past and the present, this beautifully written and many-layered story reveals the damage wrought during the apartheid era and how its legacy continues to affect people's lives today. It tells the story of Gin, who returns to London after surviving a devastating car crash that claimed her lover's life, only to find herself pregnant with his child. Now she is forced to face the ghosts that haunt her, and deal with the consequences of lies told and secrets kept. Gerda Pearce was born in South Africa and worked as a pharmacist there before emigrating to Britain to escape the apartheid regime. Long Lies the Shadow is her first novel.
