When lonely single mum Janey stumbles into an art workshop, she can't believe her eyes when her left hand mysteriously scribbles a picture of two little girls and a message from someone called 'Hattie': Janey's childhood best friend who she lost touch with after Hattie's family suddenly moved away in mysterious circumstances.
Janey's instincts tell her that she must finally find out what happened to Hattie, but when writing appears on the walls of her flat and her son Pip starts playing with an invisible friend, Janey fears she's losing her mind. Is it really a good idea to go digging up the past? As dark secrets come to light, she can't be sure what's real any more - or who to trust.

Just a lot of mismatched threads trying too hard to weave themselves into each other. I was a bit baffled by the complete nonsence of it all. I didnt take to any of the characters found them all a bit wishy washy and dont get me started on Janies mysterious 'left hand adventures' which seems to want a book series all to itself. Just beyond ridiculous.
Quite a descriptive story with slowly emerging characterisation and many many different people woven throughout the tale which take a greater or lesser role leaving the reader wandering down a pathway only to have to double back later when the story changes. Overall though a gentle read which I enjoyed. I have listened to a number of similar books and this isn't one of the best, but it is definitely easantly absorbing into its world.
