Description

Eleven days in the life of a mother as she tries to navigate herself and her family through the aftershocks of a scandal.

Six years ago, aged fifteen, Rosalind's daughter Stephanie ran away with teacher Nathan Temperley, triggering a media frenzy and resulting in Temperley's arrest and imprisonment. Although the family - Rosalind, her husband Dan, Stephanie and son Freddy - don't talk about what happened, their lives have been shaped by it and everything that came after.

When Rosalind discovers that Temperley is about to be released from prison, she's forced to re-examine the events of six years ago.

A story to resonate with all parents. * THE SUN * FRESH as today's headlines, Holland's sharp debut focuses on Rosalind Simm, the mother of 15-year-old Stephanie who ran away with her school geography teacher six years ago. * DAILY MAIL * Eva Holland's gripping debut is unputdownable. * HELLO * Tense and emotionally charged with an uncomfortably ominous atmosphere, this startling novel leads us through the complex relationship between a mother and daughter. * SUNDAY EXPRESS * When Stephanie, 15, ran off with her teacher, her mum Rosalind and family were subject to an investigation and public scrutiny. Six years on, the teacher's coming out of prison and Rosalind has to face unanswered questions. * WOMAN * Holland builds a fascinating story around a compelling subject. And the ending? It certainly leaves its mark. A great debut - Holland is definitely one to watch. * HEAT *
