'Exquisite storytelling, full to the brim with authentic characters, family secrets and emotional weight' Isabel Ashdown
All families have their secrets. But the truth will out ...

Eleanor
and her mother Marjorie have always had a difficult relationship and have somehow just failed to connect. Now Marjorie's memory is fading, and her grip on the things she has kept hidden is beginning to loosen. When she calls Eleanor to say, 'There's something I have to tell you', Eleanor hopes this will be the moment she learns the truth about the terrible secret that has cast a shadow over both their lives.

But Marjorie's memory is failing fast and she can't recall what she wanted to say. Eleanor knows time is running out, and as she tries to gently uncover the truth before it becomes lost inside her mother's mind forever, she begins to discover what really happened when she was a child - and why...
