Product description

Review

'A fearless and meticulously observed examination of pain transformed by the redeeming power of friendship'--Vanora Bennett

'A powerful novel. Its characters will haunt you long after their stories have been told.'--Naomi Gryn

'Jemma Wayne has very skilfully managed to weave together not only the alternating strands of her compelling narrative but also passages of intense action with reflective inner monologue. A highly accomplished debut!'--Gerald Jacobs "The Jewish Chronicle "

'Rich, haunted, gripping, painful and beautifully entwined'--Ruth Padel

Cosy domestic scenes in suburban London, brilliantly described, are used to contrast with experiences of absolute horror at the heart of a deep and shaming secret. For life to move on, all must be forgiven, no matter how difficult this may be.'--Phillip Knightley
