What happens when everything you thought you knew about your family turns out to be a lie?

Joy and Felicity have always been like chalk and cheese. Self-sufficient and practical, Joy was a war baby who was forced to stand on her own two feet at a very young age. Her younger sister Felicity is the cosseted darling of the family. Highly musical and doted on by her father, Felicity looks set for a career as a singer until disaster compels her to choose a very different path. 

Now their mother is dying. And there are secrets buried deep in the past. Will the truth finally set them free? As the sisters meet at her bedside to say goodbye, they discover a bond that runs far deeper than either of them ever imagined.


Sarah Meyrick's ambitious novel spans more than 80 years of life in Britain, from its opening in a vividly described bombing raid in 1942 endured by Northern Irish Bridie, one of the book’s central voices, to her death in a hospice in 2019, aged 94...

Meyrick’s novel is beautifully written, and all the characters come alive on the page... It’s a complex story vividly told.

-Peggy Woodford, The Church Times
