"I understand that it's foolish for me to expect to find anything, but I can't stop looking. I owe it to my sister, to ask all the questions, to turn over all the stones."
And we’re all a little frayed around the edges, aren’t we? It doesn’t surprise me and it doesn’t frighten me, finding out you’re only human like the rest of us.Evelyn and Philippa Hapwell (and their brother Jamie) returned from the Woodlands to WWII England five years ago. Ever since then, things have been going badly. Evelyn never quite got over it, and spends her days depressed, grieving, desperately wishing to return. Philippa, meanwhile, went to study in America to escape, hiding behind a mask of perfection, not answering letters, secretly torn up with guilt over what happened. Until Evelyn disappears.
