Publisher's Summary

The old saying goes: "A problem shared is a problem halved." But what if your problem is secret?

Erica, newly widowed, is devastated to discover her venture-capitalist husband left their finances in ruins. Determined to save her home while protecting her teenage daughters, she vows to get back on her feet without letting them, or anyone else, know the truth. 

When her girls head off on a long-planned overseas adventure, Erica focuses on her much-loved job behind a makeup counter to keep her emotionally and financially afloat - although she is troubled by a peculiar encounter at work. 

Then she loses her job, the darkness beckons, and Erica's life spirals downward, further disturbed by strange occurrences in her house. Missing objects. Stopped clocks. Noises in the night. Should she doubt her very sanity? Can she swallow her pride and make herself reach out to her friends in time? Does she have a choice?

A moving story of loss, change, and self-discovery from Australia's master storyteller.
