She has survived the tragedy of losing a child with her marriage intact - or so she thinks. When she discovers she has lost her husband to a younger woman, she panics. What is she supposed to do now? Where can she go? Who is she, without the familiar props of her marriage? Fleeing her own life, Cassie finds herself amongst the eccentric inhabitants of Shearwater, an isolated coastal village. Against her will, she is gradually drawn into the life of the town, with all its dramas, joy and secrets. But then sinister gifts start arriving and it seems someone badly wants her to leave Shearwater. Who? And why? A delicious story of self-discovery that illuminates life's infinite possibilities; a story of love, hope and human frailty that will make you laugh, and cry.' (Publisher's blurb)
