By the time Grace is eighteen, she has been orphaned, moved countries and lost touch with her only brother. Talented, awkward and a little fierce, she can't help thinking that she's managed to lose anything she's ever loved. So when she decides to revisit her past in America, she wants to know exactly what shade her mother's lipstick was and who, exactly, she should be rebelling against. And she's brought her camera - she's going to catch these memories and pin them down to keep. What she isn't expecting that summer in New Hampshire is to meet the love of her life. Some years later, now divorced and flourishing as a controversial photographer, Grace lives alone - she likes the fact that everything will be exactly where she left it. Until Grace finds that she is, quite literally, being haunted by the past. In this, her fifth novel, bestselling writer Marika Cobbold brings her trademark wit and observation to this finely wrought and moving tale about someone who has to confront the choices of her life, both as an artist and a woman.
