Pip has moved home to Southwold to heal wounds. An accident, not of Pip’s making, turns her whole world upside down. She no longer feels capable of her job as a barrister. Living under her parents’ roof seems to be the only escape and shelter she has while she tries to move beyond her pain and trauma.

While volunteering at the local thrift store, she comes across an old journal. Pip becomes immersed in the life of Evelyn Mountcastle, former actress, who like herself, has to move home to Southwold in the wake of an unexpected accident. Will Evelyn’s life be what Pip needs to move on?

Loved this whole story. The interwoven past of Evelyn’s and the present of Pip’s lives and how they are not the same, but similar in the way their own tragedies made them prisoners of their minds. Imogen Clark writes so beautifully about life and love and the human spirit. I would read her books again and again. I was so wrapped up in this story, I didn’t want to put it down.
