An intriguing story of secrets and healing, this novel finds Haz as he meets Jason, lost and friendless, on a street in Bristol and invites him to his family's summer home on Gower. But even there, beyond the peace of the sea and sky, something is wrong. Haz's mother is sad and defeated, his father angry and suspicious. And his anorexic sister Nell, who has just lost her job, holds the family in the palm of her hand. Jason may a loner, but he has a gift: a face people can confess to and a way of luring people out of themselves. The narrative shifts between Nell and Jason as confessions change everything and Jason is their catalyst.
