Louise Widdows has never been happy in her marriage. From a
generation where the woman's role was one of support and
supplication, she provided both in exchange for a secure roof over
her head. But her facade of gentility disguises two secrets: a
child born in adultery and given away at birth, and a small
inheritance she has always kept hidden. But then events align in
her favour: her husband abruptly leaves her, and the father of her
illegitimate son dies, allowing her the possibility of finding him
after all these years. Abandoning the shabby matrimonial home, she
moves into a cottage and begins to blossom in her independence. But
things are not destined to run smoothly. Two bodies are discovered
near her old home, and she discovers that her husband has absconded
with a charity's funds, as well as the contents of their bank
account. Suddenly her new life seems very precarious indeed,
putting in doubt that she will ever locate her unknown son.
