When Lily moves into Marcus's flat and plunges headlong into a relationship, she must contend not merely with the disapproval of flatmate Aidan, but with a more intangible, hostile presence. Could it be that Sinead, Marcus's ex, is trying to communicate with her? When Lily begins to 'see' Sinead, first about the flat, and then on the streets of London, she must question not merely her sanity, but whether the man she loves is someone she can, or indeed ought, to live with at all.

A disappointment from a fine writer
This is supposedly a love/loss type of story with a bit of ghostliness thrown in but it doesn't really work. I have to empathise with characters and in this I find them thinly written and unconvincing. The idea might work with a short story but this one is stretched far too thinly. Not seeing why anyone would fall in love with them! O'farrel is better than this. Well narrated thought to be fair.

Much Ado About Nothing
Maggie O'Farrell can write and I loved her book 'After You'd Gone. But this was a drama too far. Filled with detail that became endless and totally unnecessary. The story so over-blown with the Ghost-like appearances of Sinead and the expectant story of what exactly Marcus had done to her - I really wanted to slap them all. One has to like the characters and I thought they were all tiresome. The story teller trying to rush with breathy overtones didn't help either. Sorry - very disappointed.
