“Ideas for new stories can come out of nowhere and for my fourth novel, inspiration struck when I was watching a news report about a man who had disappeared without trace. Even as the news reader moved on to the next item, my mind was whirring and it wasn’t long before I had the story all planned out, exploring not only what might have happened to the missing husband but also the devastating effect his disappearance had on his family.”
When Jo pretends to be asleep as her husband leaves for work the morning after an argument, she doesn’t realise how deeply she will come to regret the opportunity to say goodbye. By nightfall, her life has changed irrevocably.
David has disappeared and there doesn’t seem to be any trace of him. But Jo is five months pregnant and her marriage is full of secrets – not least, David’s unwillingness to start a family.
As the mystery around David’s disappearance shows no sign of being solved, Jo must choose: will she give up her baby to make the man she loves come home?
