When Mattie's mother dies, Mattie begins to discover that a lot of things her mother told her about her childhood weren't true after all. And the more Mattie tries to unravel the past, the more secrets and mysteries she comes across. Mattie eventually discovers that the person she thought of as her mother, had in fact abducted her from her real parents when she was only a baby. 'A gripping mystery' - The Times. Well-written, powerful novel that will keep readers turning the pages to the end. Sue Welford is a recognized name with booksellers and is an OUP author we are keen to build. Striking cover links this with other Sue Welford novels for the same age group.
