About the Book:

f there's something bad in your past that you've deliberately forgotten, it stays forgotten. That's what Samantha believed, until the day Daniel suddenly appeared. Happily married with two little girls, the last person Samantha Colllingwood expects to move in next door is a man, Daniel, who knows the secret she has kept from her husband for nineteen years. Pressured by Daniel into re-visiting her past, Samantha is forced to confront the passions and decisions of her teenage years as she realises that the past can reach out and destroy, even now, nearly two decades later. But is destruction inevitable? Does her adult life have to be defined by what she did at fifteen? This is a story about exploitation and deceit, guilt and retribution, but, above all, the redemptive power of love.

About the Author:

Gillespie is an artist and writer who likes to explore the human condition in her paintings and novels.

Author's Note:

Life is chaotic. Open any newspaper any day and you will see events 'stranger than fiction.' At the heart of the chaos is the family drama. As a writer I want to take what I understand, what I have observed, and then make sense of it. That, for me is what fiction is, taking the chaos and making sense of it. If only life were so simple.
