Longlisted for the 2015 Women's Prize for Fiction

It was the year when Madeline’s family moved to an island her father believed God had guided him to.

It was a place where she revelled in the natural beauty of their surroundings.

It was a time of euphoria, but also of successive disasters.

It was the night Madeline turned fourteen, when she did something she thought would save her beloved mother. Something so traumatic that she cannot now recall it, but her suave new psychiatrist thinks he knows how to unlock her memory. He is treading on very dangerous ground.
