Lewis is haunted by the memory of his brother, by a stolen car and a river running full, and most of all by the boy at the wheel.

Anna is haunted too, but her ghost is very much alive. Rita, Anna's mother, is the exact opposite of her daughter - loud, carefree, and a daredevil, at seventy-six. When Rita suffers a fall, Anna must leave London and spend the winter looking after her mother in Yarmouth.

As they search for solutions to their problems, Anna and Lewis find themselves having to face troubling truths about who they are and what they might become - with electrifying consequences.
