Sarah used to know who she was—a doctor, a wife, a mother—but as she prepares for the birth of her second child, she feels set adrift from her life. Sarah’s mother, Beryl, announces she’s coming to Sydney to visit. Sarah hasn’t told Beryl she’s pregnant. She isn’t sure why not. This could be the final blow in her already fragile relationship with her mother. 

On her first day of maternity leave, a mishap at the supermarket leads Sarah to experience her mother’s past firsthand. Her understanding shifts, memory ceases to be reliable and Beryl’s experiences lead Sarah into a tangled web of lost realities and grief.

There are some lies to be untangled. 

Sarah’s search spans three generations as she travels along and across the tendrils of time to get to the truth. 

This absorbing read will have you on the edge of your seat as you join Sarah on a journey through family, memory and a mother’s lost story.

Mothers are not always what they seem and can have secrets of their own. This taut, genre-bending tale about three strong-willed women—with a twist that will turn everything you thought you knew on its head—will hold you spellbound from beginning to end.
