Things were difficult with Mike by the end. He was too much, too controlling - sometimes, I was afraid of him. But I've moved on now. I'm getting married to the man of my dreams - he looks after me, but he doesn't stifle me. Mike and the games we used to play - that's all in the past now.
It's time to move on.
Mike and I are finished.
It was just a matter of time until she came back to me. After what I did, maybe she's right to make me wait. But Verity knows how sorry I am. And the messages she sends me, the way she calls me, the way she acted last time I saw her - no-one acts like that if they've stopped caring.
She'll be mine again.
No matter who stands in my way.

‘An emotionally compelling and deeply moving novel – I loved it’ Daisy Goodwin
In a higgledy-piggledy house with turrets and tunnels towering over the sleepy Welsh village of Druith, two girls play hide and seek. They don’t see its grandeur or the secrets locked behind doors they cannot open. They see lots of brilliant places to hide.
Squeezed under her mother’s bed, pulse racing with the thrill of a new hiding place Dot sees something else: a long-forgotten photograph of a man, his hair blowing in the breeze. Dot stares so long at the photograph the image begins to disintegrate before her eyes, and as the image fades it is replaced with one thought: ‘I think it’s definitely him.’
DOT is the story of one little girl and how her one small action changes the lives of those around her for ever.
