A highly commercial psychological suspense novel with a domestic backdrop that feels chillingly close to home . . .
You can bury the past but it never dies ...Her name was Rose and she was nine years old when she died. I'm not going to make excuses for what I did. I'm going to tell my story as it is and as it was. This isn't the beginning but it's a good place to start ...Grace has lived in the same village on the east coast of Scotland for almost her entire life. Safe and secure, it is the perfect place for her and her husband Paul to bring up their twin girls. And so, despite having to contend with the trials and tribulations of her adolescent daughters and the increasing onset of Alzheimer's in her beloved father-in-law, Grace feels that, finally, life is good. Until, that is, a phone call from her old best friend, a woman she hasn't seen in years - and for good reason - threatens to take away everything she holds dear. Grace is about to discover that some secrets can't remain buried forever ...
