A tightly plotted exploration of motherhood and troubled mysteries from the author of Ghost Wall.
Anna hasn't slept in months. Stranded on a Hebridean island with two small children, she struggles to write or think without a room of her own. When her son finds a baby's skeleton buried in the garden, Anna must confront the island's troubled past, while finding a way to live with the complex demands of motherhood.
'Moss writes marvellously (and often hilariously) about the clash between career and motherhood. Allison Pearson for intellectuals' - Kate Saunders, The Times
