On the day Janey Blackman finishes school she discovers that her life is a lie: the man her mother married is not her father. Stunned and betrayed, Janey leaves home to build a different life.
In 1950s London, Janey takes a room in a boarding house, acquires a job and falls head-over-heels for gallery owner David Foley, who is engaged to Posy Bantley-Brown, her old school-nemesis.
After David and Posy marry, Janey learns that her birth-father finally wants to meet her. Now Janey wonders if Frank Blackman, the man who married her mother knowing she carried another man's child, is a truer father.

"Wonderfully written, a nostalgic experience for anyone who grew up insecure and 'outside' the popular/rich/beautiful group. Anyone who likes Maeve Binchy's books will love this one. ~Judy Jackson, Author of Find Her Keep Her.
"With wit, keen insight and an eye for detail, Gregory draws the reader into the world of her courageous, yet vulnerable heroine. Quite simply... unforgettable.
