"A poignant and uplifting exploration of what makes a relationship, of how it grows and how it makes us the person we are, this is a wonderful read" * Stylist * "Intriguing, poignant and totally absorbing. I had no idea where it was going, but found it thoroughly addictive. A masterful exploration of grief, relationships and the secrets that we keep from those closest to us. I loved it." -- Ruth Hogan, author of THE KEEPER OF LOST THINGS "McNaughton is a profoundly tender storyteller. A truly moving book about love, humanity and sadness, laced with wit - compelling reading for anyone who needs to find a light in the dark" -- Daisy Buchanan "Pulls you into its thrall from the very first pages. A book I'll press into the hands of my friends, urging them to read it" -- Kerry Hudson "Intensely moving" -- Katie Khan
