Forty-year-old nurse Terry Painter enjoys a solitary existence. Her tranquil life takes a turn, however, when young, vibrant Alison Simms rents the cottage behind her, bringing friendship and excitement. But after the initial euphoric wave, Terry soon finds that the friendship that once brightened her life has crashed down upon her, leaving her trapped in Alison's mysterious world and the whispers and lies that fuel it.

"Terry Painter, who lives a solitary life in her childhood home, decides to rent out the cottage behind her house to a cheerful young woman named Allison. With an easy pace, Laura Hicks brings us the precise voice of a middle-aged nurse who grows increasingly paranoid over the motivations of her new tenant and the girlish, forthright voice of Allison, who soon becomes involved in every aspect of Terry's lonely life. But whether Allison is the innocent she appears to be, or a manipulative con artist, is the mystery. The story of Terry's life, as she battles with the weight of her regrets and her memories of her mother's constant recriminations, builds suspense to a startling resolve. F.L.F.
