‘We’d both done things that needed forgiving… Both had secrets we needed to forget.’
Ever since Amber Caulfield lost her daughter, she’s felt empty. But the day she finds a teenage girl wandering barefoot and confused along the frozen beach of Winterton Chine, everything changes. As Amber feels her maternal instinct reawaken to help the girl, something that feels a tiny bit like hope flickers inside her–– for the first time in years.
But the girl has no recollection of who she is, or what she is doing there. She is just clutching a notebook, filled with notes, stories, and pictures that she claims not to recognise.
Who is she? Where is she from? And what led her to this particular beach in the south of England, on the coldest day of the year? Amber knows she must help her find some answers.
But neither Amber, nor the girl, know that this will be the start of a journey that will take them to Scotland, Iceland and beyond. To discover what it means to face your fears, discover the devastating secrets from your history, and to have the courage to find your family… and your way back home.
The Girl on the Beach is a gripping emotional thriller from the bestselling author of My Sister’s Secret. It explores the heartbreak of loss, the truth about family secrets, and the powerful repercussions of seeking the truth about who you really are. Perfect for fans of Emily Bleeker, Kerry Lonsdale and Kerry Fisher.
