An Unexpected Guest

A Novel

“A beautifully written novel about living with our many selves.”
– Nicola Keegan, author of Swimming

Clare Moorhouse, the American wife of a high-ranking diplomat in Paris, is arranging an official dinner crucial to her husband’s career.

More unnerving is a recurring face in the crowd, one that belonged to another, darker era of her life. One she never expected to see again.
