My darling child… I can already feel your tiny fingers gripping mine; smell your soft hair. But how do I keep you safe?

Heartbroken and alone, Ali arrives at her grandmother’s old house on the beach. Perhaps here, she can escape her past, and make a home for her unborn child. Greeted by the familiar scent of roses and the sounds of the waves, Ali feels instantly safe.

The couple next door, Michael and Meg, welcome Ali into their seemingly perfect world with their glamorous home and beautiful baby. Ali feels an instant connection and knows she has made the right choice for herself and her baby.

But Meg is holding onto a dark secret. As a powerful bond grows between the two women, Michael leaves suddenly for a work trip, and Meg becomes impulsive – unpredictable.

As Meg’s behaviour becomes ever more erratic, Michael shows no signs of returning, and Ali begins to worry. Are she and her unborn child safe? And what about her own devastating secret... the one she ran from?

An unputdownable and heartbreaking read about how far we will go to protect those we love the most, from the bestselling author of Who We Were Before. Perfect for fans of The Silent Daughter, Diane Chamberlain and Kerry Lonsdale.

This book was previously titled Safe from Harm.
