Sara’s mother Alice died 12 years ago.
Or at least that’s what Sara used to think.
Now 30 and living in Australia, she has discovered that Alice’s coffin, which she and her little sister Lucy wept over at the funeral, was empty.
Their father Bill lied to them.
And there’s their too-young stepmother Carys, trying to love bomb everyone into submission.
Sara knows Carys is not all she seems.
And now Carys is dragging Lucy round all sorts of quack doctors to try to stop her feeling so desperate and sad.
It’s time for Sara to head back to London.
It’s time to find out what, exactly, happened to Alice.
