"When Maude Strong was twenty-five years old, she killed a child." Maude was driving at twenty-eight miles an hour when the child ran out from between two parked cars. No one's fault, said the coroner, but Maude knew that no one else had killed that child, and if the court wasn't going to punish her, she would punish herself. Ten years on Maude has a life spent in shadows. A life that is no life at all, until a stranger's knock on the door and an unlikely escape to Scotland begin to convince her, almost in spite of herself, that she may have something to lose.
