Molly Page is only eleven when she tells her father she'll look after him for ever. Since her mother died years before it's been just the two of them, caring for each other. Then the Murphys move in next door. Wonderful Nora Murphy is Molly's dream of what a mother should be - and then there are her sons: irrepressible Warren, with his soft heart and grand ambitions; Pete, with his poetic soul and gorgeous voice; and, best of all, Billy who has all the charm and looks of a movie star and who, at eighteen, is almost an adult. Molly grows up with her life entwined with the Murphys - then an invitation to visit her American godmother in the Hamptons changes everything. A summer at the boathouse brings her closer to the mother she lost than she could have imagined - and the past reaches out not just to the present but also into Molly's future.
