Lisa needs to disappear.  And her friend’s rambling old home in the wilds of Yorkshire seems like the perfect place. It’s miles away from the closest town, and no one there knows her or her little boy.  But when she meets some of the locals, and hears some disturbing rumours about the house, she realises it might not be the sanctuary she thought.  Desperately trying to escape her past whilst uncovering the chilling secrets of Rowan Isle House, Lisa knows that time is rapidly running out in this darkly atmospheric novel.  What will she have to do to survive and who can she trust?
