The haunting, emotional and nerve-shredding debut that will take your breath away . . .
NAOMI ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A MOTHER.
But three years ago, her husband left, taking their child with him.
Now, her daughter has come to stay, and Naomi knows it's her one chance to re-build her family. But the night ends in a terrible accident. And Naomi tells a lie she can never take back:
NAOMI REPORTS HER DAUGHTER MISSING.
Within hours, her home is invaded. Journalists crowd the driveway. Police search the woods at the foot of the garden. Her ex-husband paces the hall.
And Naomi can't look away. Because the only thing worse than the lie she's told is the truth:
NAOMI HAS NO MEMORY OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED THAT NIGHT...
