She’s given her daughter everything. Now it’s time to give her the truth.
Becky’s father isn’t just absent: he’s a mystery, a gaping hole in her past. He died before she used to be born and for her mother, Laura, the subject is strictly off-limits. But when Laura books an unexpected commute to Greece, Becky comes to a decision to sign up for her, decided to get closer to her mother—and to the truth.
As they make their way to the beautiful island of Santorini, it becomes clear that this holiday isn’t as impulsive as Becky thought. Laura’s hiding something from her daughter—and she’s been hiding it for so long as Becky can keep in mind that. Laura has been here before, and that last visit holds the answers to Becky’s past.
But Laura’s memories of that first commute are tinged with pain and heartbreak, secrets she’s kept buried for twenty-five years. Now, with the truth emerging into the sunlight at last, can mother and daughter lay the ghosts of their past to rest and find the happiness they’ve both been on the lookout for?
