Book Description

Dec 27 2007
When schoolgirl Jodie Foot goes missing from a sleepy Dorset village, the shockwaves that reverberate through her community are as far-reaching as they are devastating. When Rachel Turner finds out her husband has lied about his whereabouts that evening, she is shattered. All she's ever wanted is a secure family life, and now it's about to be torn apart. Henry Streeter, Rachel's neighbour, is overwhelmed by old feelings of misery and loneliness as he struggles to stifle painful memories of his own childhood. And Juliet Fairweather, arriving in the village on the evening of the disappearance, is involved in an unexpected personal drama, while her mother, Bobbie, so often a bystander, is drawn inexorably into other people's lives. For everyone involved, one ordinary summer's day will bring extraordinary consequences and the need to examine their own sense of loss and longing.

By Beverley Strong - Published on Amazon.com

When schoolgirl, Jodie Foot goes missing from a small village in Dorset, nobody is alarmed for a few days as this is something that she's done before. At this same time, local villager, Rachel Turner is working herself into inner torment as she had overheard her husband manufacture an alibi with a friend, when being questioned by the police about Jodie's disappearance. A woman of low self esteem, Rachel is convinced that her husband is continually seeing other women and is terrified that he'll leave her and their two young sons. Academic, Juliet Fairweather is spending the summer in a rented cottage in the village and becomes drawn into the goings on of the small community. While her mother is visiting her, Juliet's long time lover separates from his wife and lands on Juliet's doorstep in a state of helpless confusion, used to being the centre of attention of both his wife and mistress and now suddenly thrust back into the real world without a home or anything but his rather meager salary as a professor at Oxford. It's a very neatly wrapped package of a group of people's lives when an unusual event causes them to examine their own lives and the consequences of their actions upon others.
