Summary
On a cold winter day in 1976, unmarried and pregnant, Tiggy packs up her camper van and drives west to the Cornwall moors to live with her friend Julia. Tiggys fianč recently died, and Julia, alone with her kids while her husband is at sea, gladly accepts Tiggy as her houseguest. Life is chaotic with the two women, two dogs, and Julias three children, but for Tiggy, with no family and a growing belly, its a haven. But theres something sinister lurking under the idyllic days on the moor, and years later, Julia, having buried the memories as best she can, finds herself watching her children make mistakes that could expose family secrets about Julia, Tiggy, and her visit so long ago. How can Julia protect and guide her family but still stay true to Tiggy? The always captivating Willett (Echoes of the Dance, 2007) accurately traces the tangled threads of family relations and the complications in untying them, understanding that sometimes its wiser to tie them tighter
Summary
It was in the middle of a snowstorm when Tiggy arrived at the remote house on Bodmin Moor. She was alone, her partner tragically dead in an accident, and Julia, her dearest friend, welcomed her into her warm and chaotic family. Tiggy's new-found happiness is destined to be short-lived. Nearly thirty years later, when her son is about to become a father himself, the next generation discovers that there are secrets from the past which must be uncovered
