Two people are stricken by his departure -- Judy, his childhood friend who is desperate to reveal a secret she has kept close to her heart for so long, and Joseph, his grandfather, who is racked with guilt about that fateful night.

About the Author

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up, but she went into teaching -- and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.


Praise for Josephine Cox: 'Cox's talent as a storyteller never lets you escape the spell.' Daily Mail 'Impossible to resist'. Woman's Realm 'Driven and passionate.' Sunday Times
