Publisher's Summary

It all started with...Him.

Catherine has become mute. She has witnessed something so disturbing that she simply can't speak - not to her husband, her children or her friends. The doctors say the only way forward is to look into her past. Catherine needs to start with Him. Lucian. 

Catherine met the love of her life at university and was drawn into his elite circle of privileged, hedonistic friends. But one night it all falls apart and she leaves him, shattering his life forever. 

Still, 15 years later, Lucian haunts every one of Catherine's quiet moments, and when they are unexpectedly reunited, their love reignites with explosive force. 

But they can't move on from what happened all those years ago. In fact, uncovering the truth will cause their lives to implode once again. This time with disastrous consequences.

Boring

How is it possible for a book to have such dramatic yet simultaneously boring characters? The only thing that could’ve saved this story for me is if the storyline had been remotely satisfying, but it wasn’t. Just tedious and needlessly tragic. I will be returning.

Wish I hadn't bothered!

The story was quite interesting but it has such a bleak depressing end that I wish I hadn't stuck with it and I won't be recommending it to any of my friends

Gripping read excellently written and narrated

A fantastic first novel from author Clare Empson set in SW England. It is very well narrated and a gripping read / listen. Highly recommended.
