Escaping from the pressures of life in London to peaceful Dorset, Jennet coped alone with the dual challenges of a career and a lively child. Then Saul, a gently tough, mysteriously scarred stranger, marched coolly into their ordered routine, heightening tension between mother and daughter, trailing echoes of the violence and pain Jennet thought she'd left behind; forcing her to confront the fact that she was not just a busy single parent, but a mature, passionate woman.
