The story starts with a tragic accident where a family is waiting at a train crossing for a train to clear and then get pushed into the train's path because of a reckless driver who flees the scene. The story then moves to a time when Adam, Stevie (short for Stephanie) and Laura (childhood friends) are 9 years old living on the Isle of Wright in England and the first part of the story happens in this time frame giving some background to them. Then the book moves ahead 5-7 years and the children are teenagers and dealing with life issues. As the childen are growing, artist, Catherine Jones moves to a house overlooking a cemetery in a different part of England and lives a pretty isolated existence -- hanging out in the cemetery essentially waiting for the other shoe to drop. Then Stevie turns 18 years old and learns the secret that her mother (Marie) has been holding and when she goes searching for the truth she finds Catherine who has been waiting for the day she will come so she can give it to her. Lots of secrets are laid to bear in this revealing conversation and then something good comes out of it all.
Despite all that, I did read to the end because the plot is intriguing and the final solution to the puzzle is good. I'd be willing to read further books by the author, hoping that experience will have led to greater writing skill.
