Now seventeen herself. Sophie is a mess. Her best friend is dead and her boyfriend has gone. She’s dropped out of school, sleeps through the day, eats all night and refuses to see anyone. Her family have had enough. They’re dumping her on an aunt she doesn’t know in a country town where she’ll be a complete stranger. She’s bored before she even gets there.......

But Sophie is about to embark on the strangest journey of her life. It will take her back into her family’s past, back to the origins of the bitter rift between her mother and her Aunt Fran, to her Uncle Jimmy and the Vietnam Wat, and finally to the girl in the painting and the story haunting all their lives.
