The story of you by Julie Myerson( Book )

"A freezing room in a student house, a sagging mattress on the floor, and two people, one nineteen, the other twenty, kissing passionately. All night. It is to this scene that, twenty years later, Rosy, the narrator of Julie Myerson's new novel, returns obsessively. She has just lost a child in a terrible, careless accident, and Tom, her partner, has taken her to Paris to forget about things, to start again." "It has snowed in the night and, waking at dawn, Rosy decides to go for a walk. At the hotel desk there's a note for her: 'I'm waiting for you X.' And he is, sitting in the corner of a cafe as she enters almost at random. They talk. He touches her. She turns away and when she looks again he is gone. Was he there? Had she dreamed him? And why, when he emails her out of the blue two days later, does he write as though they haven't met for twenty years?" "The Story of You is an account of a woman trying to get by as a mother, a wife, while falling in love with a man from a memory. As always Julie Myerson maps the vagaries of the human heart with extraordinary empathy and precision, while at the same time keeping the reader in breathless suspense and on the edge of tears."--Jacket

Mary and Graham Coles move to a Suffolk cottage that hasn't been lived in for years. The large garden and beautiful apple orchard are exactly what they need to put the horror of the past behind them.

The Coles are unaware of the history of the house-- one hundred and fifty years earlier, a huge oak tree was felled in front of the cottage during a raging storm... and beneath it was a young man with a shock of red hair, presumed dead.

As a child in Regency England, Mary Yelloly painted an exquisite album of watercolours. But Mary died at the age of 21, and when Julie Myerson comes across this album, she is haunted by the barely-lived life. And most of all, she is reminded of her own child. Because only days earlier, Julie and her husband locked their son out of the family home. Honest and often upsetting, this is the parallel story of a girl and a boy separated by centuries. The circumstances are very different, but the questions remain terrifyingly the same. What happens when a child disappears from a family? And how is a mother to cope when love is not enough to save her child?
