Publisher Description

I was so sure I saw Sophie on the beach that day. But it couldn’t be her. Sophie’s dead…


Ever since we swore to be best friends at school, Sophie was there for me. When she married my brother, she became family. We shared everything.


At least I thought we did.


After she died, I was devastated. Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. She was so quiet, those last few months. I’m sure there is something I don’t know…


Now I’m standing on the beach we visited when we were younger, and there’s a woman with long blond hair a few metres away, playing with a dog in the sunshine. She turns, and I see Sophie.


Heart racing, I run after her, but before I can reach her she’s vanished, leaving only footprints in the sand.  


It can’t be Sophie… Can it? And do I want to know, if the answer will destroy everything?


A gripping emotional page-turner about the ways we lie to ourselves and how love and hope can heal us. Fans of Amanda Prowse, Liane Moriarty and Susan Lewis will absolutely love The Woman on the Beach.
