The wonderfully evocative new novel from the author of FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND.
A compelling and warm drama about human nature and village life.
When Jodie Roberts goes missing from a sleepy Dorset village, the repercussions that reverberate through the small community are as far-reaching as they are devastating. Rachel begins to question her marriage for the first time after routine police enquiries reveal that her husband, Dave, lied about his whereabouts that evening. It seems that her loving family is about to be torn apart.
For Henry, Rachel's neighbour, Jodie's disappearance is also deeply traumatic. Feelings of guilt, loneliness and grief are brought to the surface, and he struggles to cope with painful memories.
Will she turn up safe and sound or will she be one of the unlucky ones? Those runaways who don t turn up unscathed
