This vividly textured tale of risk and betrayal juxtaposes an unlikely trio of two women and the child who both connects and divides them. An intimate portrayal of the bare-bones struggle for survival in the world's oldest profession, it is also a luminous page-turner about love in its limitless guises; about motherhood, sisterhood and friendship. From a tiny apartment in Cape Town, Katy works as a prostitute while raising her daughter Jody. Out of the blue, Katy's most trusted regular commits an appalling crime against the little girl, forcing Katy to make a devastating choice. Maggie is a hooker with a secret. She forges an unbreakable bond with young Jody while Katy, strident and embattled, is compelled to retrace the destructive decisions that threaten to separate her from her daughter forever. Together Katy, Jody, Maggie and the web of intriguing characters they encounter take the reader on a moving journey into unchartered regions of the human heart.
