In this dual-time novel, set between contemporary Ireland and 1940, heartbroken Phoebe Brennan retreats to her ancestral home in the West of Ireland, with no idea that the dark secrets of her family's past will play such a large part in her future.

'Poignant, warm, and unpredictable.' Julie Cohen

'[...] the best book I've read all year *****' Amazon reviewer

A heart-warming exploration of love, loss and secrets.

It's hard to run away from your darkest secrets...

When Phoebe's married lover dies in a car accident, she dare not openly express her grief for fear of their affair being found out.

Heartbroken, she leaves her life in England to search out the old boathouse bequeathed to her by her Irish grandmother. Enthralled by the stunning scenery of the West Coast of Ireland, she soon finds herself swept up by life in the nearby village of Carraigmore.

When she discovers a collection of her grandmother's old diaries hidden beneath the boat house floorboards, she becomes immersed in a story of family scandal, repressed sexuality and a passionate affair between her grandmother and a young Irish artist. With many questions unanswered Phoebe sets out to find out more, but it seems that no one in Carraigmore is telling her the truth. She's not the only one with something to hide...
