The international best seller
Elin has the perfect life. A successful photographer, she lives in New York with her husband, Sam, and their 17-year-old daughter, Alice. But something has always been missing....
When Elin receives a letter from her childhood friend Fredrik on the Swedish island of Gotland, memories come flooding back: of a past she has tried to forget and a terrible secret she has shared with nobody - a secret that made her flee the island and never return. Torn between past and present and afraid the truth will destroy her family, Elin sets out on a journey to another continent, but also to another time and another life.
"With graceful prose and an artist’s eye, Lundberg returns with a powerful and illuminating novel that navigates the channels of the human heart and the secrets that threaten to tear it apart. A poetic and haunting read, I was captured from the first page to the last." (Alyson Richman Praise)
"A beautiful tale." (The Sun)
"Such an engrossing and affecting story of love and loss – and the inescapable shadows cast on the present by the past." (Joanna Glen)
