Abstract:

Nora has come home to the Sussex coast where, every dawn, she runs along the creek path to the sea. It's more than a year since she performed in public and there are memories she must banish in order to survive. At home her mother Ada is waiting: a fragile, bitter woman who distils for herself a glamorous past as she smokes French cigarettes in her unkempt garden. In the village of Bosham the future is invading. A charming young documentary maker has arrived to shoot a film about King Cnut and his cherished but illegitimate daughter, whose body is buried under the flagstones of the local church. As Jonny disturbs the fabric of the village, the threads lead back to home, and Ada and Nora find themselves face to face with the shameful secrets they had so carefully buried.
