Their silently felt grief is destroying their marriage and as Jono grows up and away from them, Rachel is lonely and without purpose. Then she meets an old woman - surely the mother of a friend, Vanessa, who died as a teenager? But when the woman denies ever having a daughter, she wants nothing to do with Rachel. Vanessa was adored, vibrant and exciting. How could anyone deny the existence of their own child? There are frightening parallels with Rachel's own loss and she cannot let it go. In desperation, Rachel tracks down Vanessa's brother, Simon, and slowly the two of them get drawn into a dangerous and destructive relationship."--BOOK COVER.
