Beth Williams hasn't been home for ten years. When she fell pregnant at
just sixteen, knowing that her family would never approve, she ran away from
the imposing Scottish estate that had been her home, building a new life for
herself and her daughter hundreds of miles away.
But when her father begs her to return home to see her gravely ill grandmother,
Beth is apprehensive at the thought of seeing her family again. With her
daughter Isabelle, now a feisty ten-year-old, in tow, she plans to cut her visit
as short as she can whilst fulfilling her duty.
Beth has worked hard to leave her past behind her, living in London with
Isabelle and working hard to be the best single mother she can be. Returning to
the Glendale Hall estate means facing her strict and unaffectionate mother,
formidable grandmother, as well her teenage boyfriend, Drew, who broke her
heart and doesn't know that he has a daughter.
But Beth is about to discover that everyone has their own version of the
past, and the true story she thought she knew for the last ten years might well
be a very different one to the truth. Will Beth be able to find it in her heart
to forgive her mother and grandmother (and herself) for what happened ten years
ago? Or will she end up running away all over again?
