The new thriller from the author of The Boy at the Door.
What would you do to get your daughter back?
It's been three months since Alison's world fell apart when her six-year-old daughter, Amalie, died in an accident. Three months of sympathy cards, grief counselling and gritting her teeth, but it's still only the vodka and pills that seem to help.
Across town, Iselin's life is finally looking up. Her seven-year-old daughter, Kaia, has survived a life-changing operation. After years of doctors, medication and hope, they can now start thinking about the future.
These two mothers couldn't be more different, but fate will bring them together. And when it does, the consequences will be devastating.

'Intriguing and believable ... At once a compelling thriller and a beautiful meditation on grief' JANE SHEMILT.
