‘If I had known who he was – who I was – would it have changed anything? Maybe. Maybe not. But that’s it. I didn’t know. Because it was Mum’s secret. Het’s secret. And, like all skeletons, it came out of the closet. And it found me.’

When Billie inherits her grandmother’s house, it’s a fairytale come true. Maybe she can find the father she’s never met. But moving back to her mum’s childhood home dredges up secrets – and Billie soon discovers that people may die, but the past lives for ever.
