Where do you go when you've lost the centre of your world? SINCE I DON'T HAVE YOU is a powerful, emotional story of lives rebuilt and love rediscovered.
At the birth of their daughters Rachel, Mariel and Jenny make each other a promise: until they are launched into the big wide world at the age of eighteen, Emma, Catherine and Daisy will each have two 'shadow' mothers to help guide their way. Six years later, Emma is dead, killed in a road accident that Daisy and Catherine have survived. Within weeks, her mother Rachel has packed up and gone, leaving her husband, her mother, and the two best friends whose daughters she loves almost as dearly as her own. Settling in the windswept Greek island of Santorini, Rachel knows she has come to the right place. But as she slowly rebuilds her world she can't forget the pledge she once made. She hires a private investigator, the enigmatic Palmer, and arranges for regular updates on Catherine and Daisy. Over the years, with Palmer's help, she is able, quite secretly, to soothe the growing pains of the girls - as well as those of their parents. But in her new island life, and far from home, who will be there to guide her?
