Marcy Taggart is visiting Ireland on what should be her second honeymoon but her husband isn't with her as he left her for another woman. While in a bar she sees her daughter walking past. the only problem is that her daughter disappeared and is presumed to have killed herself two years ago as she was suffering from depression. Marcy has never accepted this explanation and sets out to track her down.
This is the second Joy Fielding book I have read and the characters she develops are very believeable and likeable. The storyline jumps from the present to Marcy's memories either of her childhood growing up with a mother suffering from manic depression or to her time as a mother dealing with her daughter's manic depression. It was a gripping read but I would say that I preferred "Still Life" to this one
