"But it was Mum!" Eric tells Lizzie. "I saw her..."
At first, Lizzie thinks it's just one of her little brother's stories. Their mother's dead; there's no way she could be working in a museum gift shop. But what if Eric's right? If there's a mystery at the heart of Lizzie's family, she wants to solve it ...
A gripping read from the acclaimed author of THE TRUTH ABOUT JOSIE GREEN and SECRETS, LIES AND MY SISTER KATE.
Belinda grew up in a small harbour town in New Zealand: a glorious place to be a child. She shared a pony with her sisters, and spent most of her time reading, riding, and playing on the beach at the bottom of their road. (Even now, tidal water still tugs at her imagination.)
Career-wise, Belinda has enjoyed different combinations of children and books - as a teacher, a librarian, a book publisher, and now as an almost-full-time writer. She has lived in Beirut, and Melbourne, and on the south coast in England, and now she mostly divides her time between London and Key West (in Florida).
Belinda lives in Primrose Hill, North London, with her partner, Bruce.
