She cant give younger son Daniel the attention he needs, let alone think of carving out the career for herself she always dreamed of. Ex-husband Bill is preoccupied with his new family and her friends - uncomfortable and awkward around Shelley - are fading away with alarming speed. So when Rachels mother Pandora offloads a box of her old possessions, including a diary, Rachel feels compelled to escape into a past which - on the surface - was carefree. But the box, like the Greek legend, unleashes powerful emotions as well as dark memories and secrets. Shelley, meanwhile, is having a secret romance on-line and planning how she is going to spend the rest of her short life. Not for her an undignified and painful end - shed rather have her fate in her own hands. Convincing Rachel that shed like to spend her 15th birthday in Cornwall where she spent so many idyllic childhood summers, she begins to plan her exit. But nothing is as it seems and there is heartache, joy and surprises galore in store for both mother and daughter… Told from alternating perspectives, and full of emotion of moral ambiguity, this is a powerful novel not to be missed.
