Publisher Comments:

The dream always began in the same way. Ismay and her mother would be climbing the stairs, following Heather's lead through the bedroom to what was on the other side, not a bathroom in the dream but a chamber floored and walled in marble. In the middle of it was a glassy lake. The white thing in the water floated towards her, its face submerged, and her mother said, absurdly, "Don't look!" The dead man was Ismay's stepfather, Guy. Now, nine years on, she and her sister, Heather, still live in the same house with their mother, Pamela. The bathroom, where Guy drowned, has disappeared. They never discussed the changes to the house, still less what had happened that August day... But even lives as private as these intertwine with other worlds...
