About the book


Holly's world came apart when she was six, when her mother took her, and ran away from her father and his farm. From that day on she has had no contact with him, and can barely remember him. But eight years later, with a new family around her, she feels very alone and longs for that half-remembered life. She is starting to question who she really is, and then a stranger appears...

This is an absorbing and moving book about identity, fatherhood and family.
