They had been in their final years of school when it happened. There was a party. Shaunna didn't know who he was; she could only vaguely remember where she'd been and what she'd been up to, and tried to let the memory slip away with the hangover. Four weeks later, she was certain that night was going to be with her forever.
Josh Sandison has spent his lifetime trying to keep his friends together, never forgiving himself for being the one to push George away. Now in their thirties, they reunite in a bid to help Shaunna's daughter establish her father's identity.
But there are secrets and lies that have been lived too long, with the power to destroy friendships for good.

About the author
Debbie McGowan is a social scientist, author and publisher, from the North-West UK, whose personal and academic interests collide in her writing, which is character-driven fiction:
"I try to tell the story of the characters' everyday lives, their personal challenges and achievements. I throw in a few big events along the way - the kind of stuff that happens in real life, but when you read it in fiction, you think, 'Well that's a bit far-fetched.'"
