Alice was found by the side of a road aged 6. Most of her memory had gone, following a concussion and the police struggle to locate her family.

Newspaper and television appeals fail to solve the mystery and Alice, adopted by the Brown family, tries to move on. She studies art and makes a living from her paintings of landscapes.

Despite her best efforts and the passing of twenty years, she is still haunted by a need to know what happened to her parents. Alice places a canvas on her easel and produces a portrait of a man, who she is convinced is her father.

Excerpt from the first chapter below.

Julia is all too aware of her failings, can't cook, nervous, tongue tied, lacking in confidence. Moving to a country cottage in an isolated spot is just what she needs to lift her depressions and with Mark, her loving husband, new friends and hobbies, life starts to look better.
She is soon displaying a startling change of personality, criticising and belittling people, drinking to excess and shoplifting. Is she bipolar, psychopathic or could her apparent addiction to the water from the old bore hole in the garden be to blame?
Mark sets out to solve the mystery of his wife's strange behaviour in his own logical, but unorthodox, fashion. The history of the house and its surroundings form part of his investigations. This leads to an unexpected turn of events.

“Is that a child by the side of the road? Mike, pull over.”

“It is, bloody hell, she looks like she’s lost.”

The car stopped near to where the little girl stood. The child waited as the couple left the vehicle and walked back to her. Wearing a dress which was a bit too small and a hand knitted cardigan, grubby and grazed, but otherwise unharmed, her expression was somewhat vacant.

“Are you on your own?” Nicky spoke to her in a soft voice.

A nod confirmed that she was alone.

“What’s your name?”


As Nicky was talking to the girl, Mike was calling the police. A report was made about the unusual, and worrying, discovery and a car despatched. They probably shouldn’t touch the girl, but Nicky was compelled to put a protective arm around her and explain that everything would be alright. How could she possibly know that?

A minor, alone by the side of a road, this was a priority. The police rushed to the scene and found Alice sat, feet dangling outside the car, on the back seat of Nicky and Mike’s hatchback. They didn’t want to put her in, but they also didn’t want to leave her stood on the verge. The same blank look was on the girl’s face. A trauma of some kind, the couple had decided.
