‘An ordinary family – a devastating betrayal’

Evie has been away from home long enough to bury the pain that shaped her childhood. Now, with the sudden death of her father, she must return. Back to the same house. Back to the memories. Back to her mother.

At first, coming home feels unexpectedly comforting. But, as she goes through her father’s files, Evie uncovers a secret that opens old wounds and changes her life forever.

That’s only the beginning.

As Evie’s world starts to shatter around her, she realises that those she loves most are also those capable of the deepest betrayal.


The inspiration for ‘Coming Home’ came from the quote ‘every expat is running away from something’. I wanted Evie to have run away from something quite awful, and then I wanted to force her to go back and face it. I also wanted to address one of my biggest fears – the fear of getting ‘that’ phone call in the night; the one that forces you to drop everything and run home.
