Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Legacy comes an unforgettable novel exploring guilt, love and confronting the truth. 

April, 1942. Amid the chaos of a night of bombing in Bath, six-year-old Davy Noyle goes missing. Frances Parry, looking after him at the time, is tortured by guilt and refuses to believe that he's dead.

As quiet falls and the dust begins to settle on the damaged city, a body is found. But it's the body of a little girl, Frances' best friend, Wyn, who has been missing for over 20 years. 

As Frances continues her search for Davy, this new discovery leads her back to her childhood and forces her to revisit a crime that has cast a shadow over her life. This time she vows to uncover the truth, however dark it might be.

Absorbing story with great characters

I started reading on my kindle but transferred to audible when I could not read enough as I wanted to. Anna Bentninck is so easy to listen to and brought Katherine’s book to life.
The story is captivating. Frances is a lovable character with believable and understandable flaws. She is every person, neither superhuman nor perfect, she is just quietly flawed and presents a good ground for the tougher characters in the book. Well done Katherine Webb

Not her best

I have loved all of Katherine Webb’s books, however I don’t feel that this was her best. The main character got on my nerves and it dragged on for so long that by the end I had already figured out the twist and couldn’t find any satisfaction in it.....overall something missing.
