by Pauline Barclay
When Nicola changes overnight from a bright, happy young child into a sullen, rebellious girl, ceasing to show interest in anything or anyone around her, her parents struggle to understand why. She develops into a difficult, troubled, hostile teenager but they put it down to hormones, believing it will pass but Nicola goes from bad to worse.
No matter how desperately her mother reaches out to her, it, Nicola seems hell bent on self-destruction.
She leaves home at seventeen, rushes into the arms of a man ten years her senior and quickly becomes pregnant.
A decade later, the events that stole Nicola’s childhood and changed the course of her life threaten to destroy her. She knows if she is to cling on to her sanity she must tell her mother the dreadful secret she has carried all these years, but her fear that she will be met with disbelief, hostility and branded an evil liar drives her closer to the edge.
A heart-rending story of betrayal, secrets and gripping fear.

A little about Pauline
I am from Yorkshire, but have lived in several different locations including, Suffolk, Surrey and Holland. Today, I live on one of the beautiful volcanic islands of the Canary Isles with my husband and our two gorgeous rescue doggies.
Years ago I gained a BA (Hons) degree from the Open University, today I spend my time writing fiction. I have five books published, plus a 20 minute short festive story.
My passion is to write about events that happen in life and change everything for those involved as well as those caught up in the maelstrom. I want my characters to sit at your side, steal your attention and sweep you up in their story. Stories that will bring tears to your eyes, have you laughing out loud and sometimes, what they share with you, will stay in your hearts for a very long time.
