***TOP-TEN BESTSELLING AUTHOR***

From Richard & Judy bestselling author of The Twins comes a haunting and suspenseful new novel about a girl with a secret - and a past that is destined to catch up with her...

'There are some books which are so compelling, the plots so engaging and the writing so perfectly paced and accessible that simply captivate the reader and this for me was one such book' We Love This Book

Despite everything life has thrown at Eliza Bennet, she's living the life she's worked so hard to achieve. She's who she wants to be, where she wants to be and with the man she loves.

But Eliza is living a lie. Her real name is Klaudia Myer, and Klaudia is on the run, escaping her old life and a terrible secret buried at the heart of her family.

Eliza feels as though she's been running away her whole life. But when her father comes to her with a terrible request, she knows her double life is about to be exposed.

How much longer is it safe to carry on pretending?

This is a haunting and deeply powerful story about identity and the deep secrets that lie at the heart of every family.
