'Beautifully written, emotionally intelligent.'
Daily Mail

'What separates Thomas' writing from your average domestic drama is its compelling persuasiveness.'


After a stressful year at work, GP Jess decides the family needs a seaside holiday.

This idyllic Dorset cottage might just be the perfect escape. But when the neighbour hints at a dire predicament, Jess puts the idea of sun-kissed, sandy bliss on hold. Like a door nudged ajar, the lure of solving someone's problems invites her in.

Fuelled by a heady rush of altruism, she decides to act - a choice that will have unforgettable, potentially devastating consequences.
