But when the feud between her mum and Nan escalates into tragedy Grace finds she must tell the biggest lie yet - and live with the consequences. For Alec Holm, 1975 is the year no one believes the truth and he finds himself convicted for a crime he didn't commit. But fate is making its own plans for Alec and Grace. Fifteen years later their two paths cross in the most unexpected of ways...
