But amongst them there are some things that must be kept hidden. And, nearing blindness, Elear needs help to uncover them before her children and grandchildren do. Peter, a young man with a broken heart who feels as lost as Elear's past, is employed to help with this task. And together they uncover traces of ather life - words and photographs telling a story of forbidden love, betrayal, passion, grief and self-sacrifice, which Elear must visit one last time. By speaking her memories out loud, and releasing the secrets of her past, Elear can finally lay them to rest. To hour them at last, and protect those who must never kw.

As well as being a novelist, Nicci Gerrard is a journalist, a campaigner and a humanist celebrant. In 2016 she won the Orwell Prize for Journalism, for 'Exposing Britain's Social Evils', for a piece exploring the 'language' of dementia. Following her father's terrible final year and his death in November 2014, she and her friend Julia Jones founded John's Campaign, which insists that the carers of people with dementia have the same right as parents of sick children to accompany them when in hospital. The campaign, which seeks to make care for those who are vulnerable and powerless more compassionate, began in a kitchen but is now a national movement, recognised by NHS policy makers, by charities, by nurses and doctors and carers. Four hundred hospitals have already signed up to the campaign.
