The day Frances Fall steals a baby from outside a shop, is the day her past catches up with her. As Frances tries to explain her terrible actions, she is forced to relive a life that has never made sense to her: a life dominated on one side by a stern unyielding mother and on the other by friendship with the most dazzling daring girl in their no-hope town, a friendship that means the world to a shy insecure teenager but which ends in disaster. Early memories of a better time - of being loved by her parents and doted on by the dazzling aunt who died young, taking all the joy out of their lives - puzzle Frances. In order to fit all the pieces of her past together she must force herself to confront and forgive betrayals that were not of her making. Most of all though, she must forgive herself.
