Book Description
Audrey is a Londoner. Anonymous in the city, she has left her roots - and her traumatic past - far behind in Canada. But a passionate affair with Jack, and a new friendship with Shereen, bring uncertainties and confusion, and Audrey finds her life becoming inextricably, powerfully linked to the past.
