About this title


You can’t have it all. So what must you choose to lose? And will it be worth the sacrifice?

“Don’t let this brilliant book pass you by!” Amazon reviewer.

Six-year-old Belinda Brabbage has amassed a wealth of wisdom. She knows all the best hiding places, how to zap monsters with her pig-shaped torch and why never to accept lifts from strangers – even ones who offer Fizzy Fish. But Belinda’s mummy isn’t like the other mothers who gather at the school gates. She’s... different somehow. Mummy doesn’t like to be plagued with questions. But when she isn’t concentrating, she drops nuggets of information. Belinda collects them all, sure a pattern will emerge. It’s only a matter of time.

Time is Alison’s enemy. This hand to mouth existence of hers was only supposed to be temporary. But there’s one clock she can’t re-set. Belinda is growing up. Soon she’ll recognise the ballerina in the photograph album. She’ll understand who her mother was, who she could have been - and what she does to pay their rent. With options running out, Alison consults a blind clairvoyant, whose visions of pelicans and bookshelves appear to herald change. Then a chance meeting with an affluent couple affords a glimpse of the life Alison so desperately wants for her daughter. But can she trust their offer of friendship?

Writing with compelling honesty, Davis is clearly a writer at the pinnacle of her craft. This unflinching novel of a desperate single mother haunted by thwarted dreams is populated with beautifully flawed characters, beneath whose tumultuous lives lie deeply buried secrets.

"An extraordinary level of emotion brought on by some superb storytelling." The Cult Den.

“A damn good read, and dare I say, important.” Linda Cooper.

“I never doubted that things happened exactly as described, right to the very last word.” Jean Gill

About the Author:

Jane Davis is the author of seven novels. Her debut, Half-truths and White Lies, won the Daily Mail First Novel Award and was described by Joanne Harris as 'A story of secrets, lies, grief and, ultimately, redemption, charmingly handled by this very promising new writer.' The Bookseller featured her in their 'One to Watch' section. Six further novels have earned her a loyal fan base and wide-spread praise. She is regularly compared to more seasoned authors such as Kate Atkinson and Maggie O’Farrell. Writing magazine described her work as 'exemplary' and named An Unknown Woman their Self-published Book of the Year. Jane's favourite description of fiction is ‘made-up truth’. Jane lives in Carshalton, Surrey with her Formula 1 obsessed, beer-brewing partner, surrounded by growing piles of paperbacks, CDs and general chaos. When she is not writing, you may spot Jane disappearing up the side of a mountain with a camera in hand.
