Storyline

After the recent passing of her father, Sigourney returns home to the Midlands, planning to write a report on a local mystery she had obsessed over during her childhood in the hopes it will bring her some closure. Troubled by phantoms in the night, Sigourney seeks comfort from her mother, drawing on the close relationship which has been under pressure since her moving away. It is this relationship that Marlene, the elderly heir of a local estate, senses and hence chooses to impart her knowledge of the mystery. When Sigourney visits Marlene, the two form a connection and the story of Bella, whose body was found inside a wych elm on the property during the Second World War, is revealed: Marlene is the daughter of 'Bella', a local woman killed by Nazis who were targeting Greta, a German double agent. Greta witnessed this murder and adopted Bella's identity, raising Marlene as her own. Written by Freya Noyce
