Summary
"Neve Ayres has always been so careful. Since her mother's death when Neve was seven, she's learned to look after herself and to keep her cards close. But now her deliberately constructed world has collapsed: her partner left her when she was eight months pregnant. And, so alone with her newborn son, she's retreated to her cliff-top holiday house in coastal Flinders. There, another child comes into her life. The first time Neve sees Jessie, the small girl is playing on an empty stretch of beach. On the cold autumn day, she is bare-legged and alone, while her mother is distracted by her own troubles. At once, almost despite herself, Neve is intrigued and concerned, and Jessie is drawn to Neve's kindness - and to her home. To Neve's surprise, Jessie becomes an unlikely source of much needed care for her and her baby. Having been lost in the sleepless haze of new motherhood, Neve is touched, and finds herself grappling with how to best help the forgotten girl. She has the spacious house, the full pantry, the resources ... But how much can you - should you - do for a stranger's child?"--Back cover
