""...a definite page turner that once picked up cannot be put down..." "
The MacBrides have always gone to Far Barn in Devon for Bonfire Night, but this year everything is different; Lydia, the matriarch, is dead. Her children also have their own problems whilst struggling to cope with this bittersweet annual celebration and their grief. Sophie, the eldest daughter, is desperately trying to repair a crumbling marriage whilst Felix, the youngest of the family, has brought a girlfriend with him - for the first time.
The girlfriend, Kerry, appears odd but no-one can really say why and later they leave her looking after Sophie's baby daughter. However, on returning they find both Kerry and the baby gone which then leads to events that will change their lives forever.
