The book

Margaret Forster’s twenty-sixth work of fiction is a subtle, psychologically probing of personal history, guilt, and redemption. Julia, a troubled and isolated child with few friends, is tormented by the irreparable damage she believes she has caused her family during a seemingly innocuous outing with her cousin’s newborn child. Haunted by guilt and anxiety, she becomes a child psychologist and, later, a magistrate. Yet as The Guardian notes, “It's a gripping read without being a thriller because we are drawn ineluctably into something darker that we sense is always floating just beneath the surface of what Julia chooses to tell us.” Executed with razor-sharp control and remarkable confidence.
