'Beautiful, haunting.' LOUISE KENNEDY

'Vividly real . . . There's love here as well as pain.' MARIAN KEYES

'I loved it.' LIZ NUGENT


Two women, wrenched apart by a terrible crime, must find a way back to each other. When Deena Garvey disappears in 2004, she leaves behind a daughter and a sister.

Deena's daughter grows up in the country. She learns how to hunt, when to seed the garden, how to avoid making her father angry. Never to ask about her absent mother. Deena's sister stays stuck in the city, getting desperate. She knows the man responsible for her sister's disappearance, but she can't prove it. Not yet.

Over fourteen years, four hundred miles apart, these two women slowly begin to unearth the secrets and lies at the heart of their family, and the history of power and control that has shaped them both in such different ways. But can they reach each other in time? And will the truth finally answer the question of their lives: What really happened to Deena Garvey?

'An engrossing, deftly-told story with an aching secret at its heart, this is a profoundly moving novel of family and women standing strong together.' LISA BALLANTYNE
'Sharp, poignant, thrilling and moving.' CHRIS WHITAKER
'Una Mannion's a terrific writer and an exciting new talent.' AUDREY MAGEE
'Una Mannion beautifully chronicles what we lose in the badlands of family.' EOIN MCNAMEE
