Product Description


"Moving, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, this novel is Margaret Forster at her very best" (Daily Mail)

"Like memory itself, it is subtle, full of secrets, and it lingers" (Independent)

"A compulsive read, beautifully written... with the same talent she displayed so brilliantly in Hidden Lives" (Sunday Express)

"Deft, unusual and very readable... Margaret Forster has again written a vivid and compulsive novel" (Financial Times)

Book Description

A powerful, dramatic and disturbing novel about the long shadow cast by the memory of a dead mother on the life of her daughter - another brilliant exploration of family mythology and guilt from a novelist who reigns supreme in this territory.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I liked the style of writing and the story was fascinating in the way that it evolved. A different way of looking at things.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book 6 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's brilliantly constructed - an absorbing search for explanations and identity. I was torn between voraciously turning the pages and rationing it because I couldn't bear to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A special book 13 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book! From the first sentence on I was completely hooked. Margaret Forster writes with such beautiful prose and creates a real sense of mystery which engulfs the reader from start to finish.
