A startlingly beautiful novel about the complications of family relationships by highly acclaimed novelist Janet Davey.
Anita Mostyn feels the need to take a holiday from her life. As a child, she was dismissed by her parents in favour of her more confident brothers, and as an adult, her choices are disapproved of -- the small art gallery she works for, the friends she makes, the men she sees. On a whim, she takes up an offer to scout for holiday properties in Bulgaria, escaping the impending second wedding of her perfect brother. But as Anita navigates these difficult waters, a horrifying episode in her past -- the thing she has really been trying to escape -- comes back to haunt her.
