An exceptionally mature and tautly written first novel reminiscent
of Josephine Hart's `Damage'.Haunted by childhood loss, 23-year-old
Louise takes on her late mother's name and sets out to find
Nicholas, the man she has always held responsible for her mother's
death. Now a middle-aged lecturer, husband and father, Nicholas has
nevertheless been unable to shake off the events of his past, when
he and Louise's mother, Lydia, had a clandestine, destructive and
ultimately tragic affair. As Louise infiltrates his life and the
lives of his family, she forms close and intimate relationships
with both his son and his wife, but her true identity remains
unknown to Nicholas himself. Tensions grow and outward appearances
begin to crack, as Louise and Nicholas both discover painful truths
about their own lives, each other and the woman they both loved.
