A heartbreakingly beautiful novel from one of Britain's finest and most acclaimed talents

A flare of light cuts through a gap in the curtains, dust motes swirl and though it is missing from his bedside table, Mira's photograph is the first thing that swims into focus: Mira, with a crown of daisies and sunshine in her hair.

When they first meet, Julian is twenty-one and an English student. The beautiful Julia, almost a decade his senior, is married to a violent man. Intoxicated by each other they give up all that they have to be together. Julian abandons his degree for Julia and their unborn child, and together they build a life in London. But when Julian discovers his idyllic childhood home Firdaws is up for sale, the pull of the countryside and the chance to pass on this legacy to their daughter Mira is irresistible. Uprooting his family and putting all he has into the restoration of Firdaws, Julian is determined to build a sylvan paradise for his family. But as Mira becomes ill they are thrown into turmoil and secrets come to light that threaten the very foundation of their lives.
