Discover the gorgeously addictive story of love and betrayal in the compelling bestseller from Elizabeth Buchan 'A gripping, immensely satisfying novel with a twist in the tale' Red 'Wrapped in the roots of the sycamore was a skeleton; the remains of a woman, between twenty-five and thirty. She had carried a child . . .' At the close of the Second World War, Intelligence Officer Gus Clifton returns to London. On his arm is Krista, the German wife he married secretly in Berlin. For his two sisters, this broken woman is nothing more than the enemy. For Nella, Gus's loyal fiancee, it is a terrible betrayal. As the three women wonder what hold Krista has over decent, honourable Gus, they begin to ask themselves: How far will they have to go to permanently get her out of their home, their future, their England? PRAISE FOR THE NEW MRS CLIFTON 'Buchan brilliantly captures the blighted atmosphere of blitzed London' Daily Mail 'The tension is palpable and the atmosphere claustrophobic. Buchan vividly conveys the mood of a post-war London brought to its knees. A powerful and emotional read' Sunday Express 'I loved this story of post-war adjustment which sets up a mystery on the first page' Cathy Rentzenbrink, Stylist 'So so good. Great writing, great story. I could not put it down' Marian Keyes

Great writing, great story. I could not put it down -- Internationally bestselling author, Marian Keyes The tension is palpable and the atmosphere claustrophobic.

A powerful and emotional read -- FIVE STARS * Sunday Express * This compelling novel deals with the complex legacy of the war years ... Buchan, who brilliantly captures the blighted atmosphere of blitzed London and bomb-destroyed Berlin, is equally good on the emotional fall-out ...

Her books are rich with authentic period detail and her characters are vivid and intensely believable - I love this book -- Peter James Impressive . . . nerve-janglingly engrossing . . . Buchan brings the period vividly to life * Sunday Times * When their brother brings home a German bride in the wake of the Second World War, two sisters wonder what hold she has over him in the elegantly written The New Mrs Clifton * Good Housekeeping * A wonderful book about life in post-war London ...
