A Single Breath (Paperback)Lucy Clarke (author)
The deeper the water, the darker the secrets
There were so many times I thought about telling you the truth, Eva. What stopped me was always the same thing...
When Eva's husband Jackson tragically drowns, she longs to meet his estranged family. The journey takes her to Jackson's brother's doorstep on a remote Tasmanian island. As strange details about her husband's past begin to emerge, memories of the man she married start slipping through her fingers like sand, as everything she ever knew and loved about him is thrown into question. Now she's no longer sure whether it was Jackson she fell in love with - or someone else entirely...
The truth is, it was all a lie . . .
