Amy escapes her violent boyfriend with a job at Woodbrook Primary School, the place of traumatic memories that still plague her twenty years on.

Secretly ashamed of her loser reputation, Amy hides her ex-pupil status from the staff, even pretending that she has never met Joel, the once-cherished teacher who unexpectedly becomes her colleague.

Under the guise of a confident woman, Amy is determined to eclipse her troubled past. But when she hooks Joel into a deep and passionate relationship, the fear of bursting his bubble with her true identity pushes her ever closer to being exposed.

Emma Whittaker

Emma has had a lifelong obsession with words, composing poetry and stories from a young age. With a BA (Hons) in English and Creative Studies, she has enjoyed a career in magazine journalism as the Editor of various craft and hobby publications.

In her novels, Emma explores emotions, behaviour, and relationships, bringing a voice to the issues we encounter in life that all too often go unnoticed. She blends these themes with descriptive settings, fuelled by her passion for nature, and as an avid reader of romantic fiction, she champions sweeping love stories.

Her home in West Sussex, sandwiched between the coast and the countryside, provides endless inspiration for her writing. She lives with her husband, two children, and a houseful of dogs and cats.
