How can you build a new life on toxic foundations?
Emma Willshire has overcome plenty of obstacles in her life, from student bride to single mum of a son, Owen, but she has found happiness with her second husband, Paul and another child, Mollie. Emma’s dark days seem far behind her until a fatal accident happens at Paul’s work and he is held responsible.
On holiday in France, trying to leave his problems behind, Paul’s behaviour turns erratic. On impulse, he buys a cheap, dilapidated property and, to Emma’s dismay, persuades her they can restore it into a holiday home. As the couple strive to renovate their marriage, and their French ruin and to open a small business, shadows from the past threaten their happiness and safety.
Escape to a new life in France seemed like the only solution, but leads to heart-breaking loss for Emma. As new secrets and deception are unearthed, danger erupts and Emma must fight to protect Mollie and to save herself.
