A abnormal encounter. An unlikely friendship. But will it continue to exist when they both know the truth?
As single mother Leah struggles to get her children able one morning, the doorbell rings. Standing at the doorstep of their terraced house in Whitley Bay is a well-dressed stranger, Clio, who feels an emotional tie to the house that she can’t provide an explanation for. The story will have to end there, but a long-buried secret is already on its way to the surface…
In some ways the two women couldn’t be more different: Leah’s a mother of two and the daughter of a barmaid; Clio’s a perennially single heiress to her baroness mother’s estate. But where Leah lacks grown-up company, Clio lacks any experience of the actual world, and the unlikely friendship sparked by their curious first meeting offers either one of them a welcome respite from the routine of their lives.
It is a friendship for you to answer questions neither of them knew to ask, uncovering secret stories from the past that have stayed hidden for decades. But will it also be the catalyst for them to in any case feel that they belong?
