Compelling and elegant - this is commercial women's fiction at its very best. "I've striven to be the perfect mother, wanting to create a perfect childhood for my child. Yet something has gone wrong..." Catriona has the life she's always dreamed of: a loving husband, a delightful step-daughter and her own precious little girl, Daisy. When Daisy begins to feel poorly, Catriona seeks help and in doing so, is forced to look to the past and her own traumatic and abusive childhood. When Cat is accused of harming eight-year-old Daisy through Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy, Cat begins to realise that the life she has now is more fragile than she could ever have imagined.
