A gripping and emotionally searing novel from an accomplished author.
Anne Cassidy has tackled a terrifying subject with subtlety and imagination.
Three children walked away from the cottages on the edge of the town towards Berwick Waters. Later that day only two of them came back ... Alice Tully knows exactly what happened that spring day six years ago – though it’s still hard for her to believe it’s real. The images, the sounds and the aftermath are imprinted on her memory. She’ll never be able to forget, even though she’s trying to lead a normal life. She’s making a go of things, putting her past behind her at last. But Alice’s past is dangerous, and violent, and sad – and it’s about to rip her new life apart.
