About Forever Past: Italy, 1873. Claire Clairmont, one of the last surviving members of the Byron/Shelley circle, is determined to uncover the true fate of Allegra, her daughter conceived with Lord Byron. But her quest so far has been fraught with danger, and Claire knows she has enemies who will stop at nothing to keep past secrets hidden.

When she learns of a stunning revelation involving the abbess and Allegra, Claire returns to the convent of Bagnacavallo with her close companions to confront the abbess, and soon finds herself grappling with a series of chilling and threatening events.

As Claire finally closes in on the truth, could someone in her closest circle be plotting against her? And can she survive long enough to get the answers she craves?

A spellbinding, seductive, and stunning work, Forever Past is a standout summer read replete with mystery, history, and mystique. Beautifully written, masterfully told and meticulously researched, Forever Past is a hauntingly rich and unforgettable tale that will linger with readers long, long after the final page is turned.

Forever Past joins Ambrose’s two previous Lord Byron Mysteries Claire’s Last Secret, and A Shadowed Fate. Forever Past has earned high pre-publication praise, including:

“Moving…even more than the atmosphere-rich suspense, the novel’s strength is in its dealing with the question that tormented Claire her whole long life: Was her reckless, passionate pursuit of Lord Byron ultimately worth it? Fans of this romantic trilogy will be sorry to see it end.” – Publishers Weekly
