Publisher Comments:

B format paperback edition of one of the most widely acclaimed debut novels of last year. A literary thriller which is both a love story and a story of absence, and which gradually draws us into the dark secret at the heart of one family. "An effortlerss read... a compulsively readable and accomplished first novel" Lesley Glaister, "Independent On Sunday". "A writer of rare insight and intellect with a feel for language that renders her love story both tender and tragic" "Financial Times".

Synopsis:

Alice Raikes boards a train at King's Cross to visit her family in Scotland. Hours later, she is lying in a coma at a London hospital, after an accident that may have been a suicide attempt. Drifting in and out of consciousness, Alice begins to recollect her past and a curtailed love affair.
