Tara Fraser leaves London to start a new life in a Cumbrian town selected at random. She plans to obliterate her past, which contains a shocking event that had serious consequences, by becoming a completely different personality from her previous volatile self. She is going to be quiet - even dull, and very private. But one of her new neighbours, Nancy, is intrigued by her, and wants to become her friend. Equally determined not to be discarded are three old friends who Tara feels let her down when she most needed them. Tara fights to keep herself to herself; but can she do it? And does she really want to? Slowly, reluctantly, she discovers that her attempts to suppress the past and reject other people are downright dangerous...

The description of the neighbour was wonderful. The dialogue was stilted & awkward. The secret never clearly got exposed. So really there was little explanation & I wanted one. I ended up not liking the main character, Tara. Then it just finished & it left me wondering why we had gone there in the first place.
