That boy you went to school with, the girl who shared your university room for a term, the neighbour you glimpsed through the curtains - where did they go when they left?
A nineteen-year-old runs away from her life and keeps on running. Haunted by the unexplained departure of her mother four years earlier, she is looking and not looking. Adopting one identity after another - female escort, apple-picker, cashier, canvas girl in a travelling circus - she is afraid to slow down for fear of what, or who, may catch up with her. When anonymous postcards start to arrive at every place she goes, she is finally forced to confront the fate of her long-gone mother. Can this runaway-girl escape the same end?
In a novel riddled with family secrets, a predictably happy ending is never a guarantee. But one thing becomes certain; people can only ever save themselves.

Industry Reviews

"'This humane novel of a teenager desperately seeking her runaway mother has an edge and a sexiness that keeps you turning the pages'" -- Suzannah Dunn "'A diverting, characterful voice.'" * Daily Mail *
