Julia Lambett heads across the country to her hometown where she’s been given the job of moving her recalcitrant father out of his home and into care. But when Julia arrives at the 1970s suburban palace of her childhood, she finds her father has adopted a mysterious dog and refuses to leave.

Frustrated and alone, when a childhood friend crosses her path, Julia turns to Davina for comfort and support. But quite soon Julia begins to doubt Davina’s motivations. Why is Davina taking a determined interest in all the things that Julia hoped she had left behind? Soon Julia starts having troubling dreams, and with four decades of possessions to be managed and dispersed, she uncovers long-forgotten, deeply unsettling memories.


‘Evocative, unsettling, and warmly told, a breathtaking portrayal of the intimacies of an ordinary family from a thrilling storyteller.’ Brooke Davis

‘A superlative novel – delicate, fragile and deeply reflective, with prose that can shatter and fine edges that cut deep.’ Catherine Noske
