Evie, born in 1887, and Shona, born in 1956, have one thing in common: both were abandoned as babies by their mothers. Different times, different circumstances, but they both grow up sharing the same obsession. Each sets out to haunt her mother, with terrible consequences for everyone involved.

Review:

"A brilliant exploration of choice and consequence" (Mail on Sunday)

"Enthralling... readers will plunge happily into the kind of family story for which Margaret Foster is celebrated and which she executes so well" (Anita Brooker Spectator)

"An unfailingly intelligent novel, full of lucid observation of a phenomenon, mother-love, too often seen through a gilded haze of false feeling and wishful thinking... Forster is a fine storyteller" (Sunday Times)

"Intricate, romantic and full of suspense" (Observer)

"An excellently funny, moving novel... a text for our times" (Auberon Waugh Independent)

Book Description:

A powerful, moving story about motherhood, abandonment and guilt which casts a shadow across generations.
