Having lost touch with the rest of her family, Mandy returns as a virtual stranger to her aunt's house to nurse her grandfather.
Mandy hardly recognises the house that she loved so much as a child and it is almost as though her mind has blanked it out.

What she discovers is so painful and shocking that she understands why it was buried and never spoken of by the family for all those years.

Her relationships become more problematic, and when bizarre accidents begin to occur, she starts to think she might be cursed. But when Belinda learns the woman she replaced in the carpool died under mysterious circumstances, she begins to think she’s being targeted—and not for Employee of the Year.
