a novel about the fear of letting go
Six years after her husband disappeared without trace, solitary Abbie is still obsessed with keeping Nick’s memory alive in the belief that he will return home. But, as disturbing memories surface, it becomes harder to maintain the pretence that their marriage was the perfect union Abbie wants it to be.
When a young family moves into the flat upstairs, their lives slowly encroach on Abbie’s. Will she withdraw further into her unusual, nocturnal existence or can they break through her loneliness and allow her to finally let go, heal, and move on?
