Nancys mum and dad split up. Her father PatrickMoreNancy is four, nearly five. She talks all the time: in the car, on the way to nursery, to her extrovert older brother, to her collection of bears.

But then, one February morning, everything changes. Nancys mum and dad split up. Her father Patrick moves away from their Bristol home to Newcastle. And Nancy stops talking.Eva is forty-four, nearly forty-five. She didnt expect to be the third wife of a much-loved household name, but eight years ago, she and semi-retired bad boy Michael Quinn fell in love. Eva knew marrying a much older man meant compromises, but it was the love of a lifetime for them both - until Mickey dies suddenly, leaving Eva alone with his gossipy diaries, their two pugs, and a distressing voice in the back of her mind, wondering if perhaps shes sacrificed more than she meant to.While Nancys parents negotiate their separation, the question of weekend contact is solved when Patrick volunteers his sister Evas house.

Its in Longhampton, an hour out of Bristol, with plenty of room for her to get to know a niece and nephew shes barely met - even if Nancy continues to refuse to speak. Patrick is sure its just a phase but his soon-to-be-ex-wife is worried that something more traumatic lies at the heart of their daughters selective mutism.Meanwhile, Eva begins to read through Mickeys diaries, and with every page shes forced to confront a view of her marriage that turns everything she believed about her late husband, her self - and her own heart - on its head.

The fortnightly presence of two children in her peaceful, grown-up home - one constantly singing and performing, the other wordless and sad - initially drives Eva and the two pugs, Bumble and Bee, to exhaustion, but as spring turns into summer, a trust slowly begins to form between an anxious little girl with a heartbreaking secret, and a woman who has realised too late that what her soul yearns for is the love of a child.
