Here I am, in the early hours of the morning in a strange apartment, with a friend I barely know anymore.

Some memories are hard to live with. Others are better left dead and buried.

Susan hopes to escape memories of her dead husband by flying around the world to visit Sophie in New York. It’s the most spontaneous thing she’s ever done. Her oldest friend should be able to help her deal with Henry’s death, except ten years leaves their once tight friendship strained.

Can Susan recover from her loss while recovering her friendship? Or will she keep running?

Frances Duncan, Sir Julius Vogel Award finalist and founder of the Jane Austen Society of New Zealand, brings you a story about loss and growth that has hints of Jane Austen’s last published novels Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.
