Past imperfect was not originally envisaged as a separate book. I anticipated that the long shadows cast from the uneasy histories of the fictional Dunbar and Marcou families would haunt the present and the future within a single lengthy novel through brief flashbacks. But as the characters came to life they insisted that the snares of earlier challenges, complications and unintended consequences were vital to understanding Freya’s and Alexander’s roller-coaster experiences from the 1970s onwards. As I learned more about their thoughts and feelings and the issues for their families and friends, the inevitable paths of the saga unfold through the conflicts, choices, heartaches, joys and resolutions until the end of the first decade of the 21st century. Thus Past imperfect became the first novel of the Long shadows series.
