Abstract:

It's been eight years since Gen Loxley lost her daughter, Beth; eight years of grief, in which nothing's moved forward. Gen, once a writer of novels, has settled into a life of half-hearted teaching, while Art makes his name and their fortune - and pressures her into trying IVF once again. For Gen, it seems a cruel act of replacement; life without Beth is unthinkable, unbearable - but still it goes on. And then a woman arrives on Gen's doorstep, saying the very thing she longs to hear: that her daughter was not stillborn, that she is out there, waiting to be found ... So why is Art reluctant to get involved? To save his wife from further hurt? Or is it something much more sinister?
