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.

"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)

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

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