Brought to you by Penguin.
The mysterious stranger is perfect. But nobody knows who she is. And nobody can imagine the terrible things she has done to survive.
A young woman moves into a small cottage in a Cornish fishing village. She is beautiful and alluring, and among both the locals and the summer visitors, she inspires infatuation and resentment in equal measures. She carries with her no trace of her history, or her previous life, or the past she has left behind.
But that past is closer than she thinks. And it is looking for her.
Who She Was begins with a bonfire burning on a Cornish beach in the middle of the night. A young woman waits for morning, and the estate agent to arrive with the keys to her new life in the peaceful fishing village. But can anyone really have a new life? And what happened in her old life? And what price did she pay to escape it?
And when her past finally catches up with her in her idyllic new home, secrets long buried will explode into the light, and change the lives of everyone around her.
Who She Was is a My Cousin Rachel for our time - a psychological thriller of shifting perception where no-one's identity is ever quite certain or ever exactly what it seems, a story that dances on the thin line between truth and lies, good and bad, and where it is never revealed who is the victim and who the murderous perpetrator, until the very last line of the very last page.
