With a busy life as a family doctor and the worry of elderly parents, Grace Dunstable feels that she is well overdue some good fortune.

But as they grow closer, the rest of Grace's life strangely starts to fall apart and after a sequence of increasingly upsetting events, she begins to wonder if she has inherited her mother's mental health problems. Thank goodness for the tenacity of Harry, her work colleague, who doggedly sets out to find out just what exactly is going on and who Gideon Barlow really is. From the author of the popular Teviotdale medical centre series comes a new novel, with a new heroine, romance, medicine and more than a touch of suspense
