Coleridge was the start of everything for Zadie and Dalia. Their love for the old house began as a restoration project and blossomed into a love story. Until the tragedy.
Coleridge was all Dalia Cromwell had left. It served as both a tribute to their love and a harsh reminder to her loss. Until the visitor arrived.
Coleridge was his obsession. Slade knew more about the house than Dalia did. And he knew of its past.
By the end of their long night together in the house, Dalia would know all of Coleridge’s secrets, and Zadie’s.
