Everyone else she keeps at a distance...including Paul Farrell.
Paul was Stuart's closest friend. An ex-war journalist, he and Kate have one thing in common. They both seem equally distant. Then Paul publishes an article, revealing an astonishing secret. On a trip to the Yorkshire moors with a group of teenage girls, Kate's scarred heart begins to open up
But can she risk her son's happiness, as well as her own?
