Summary

When Kenneth Earl advertises for someone to help him catalogue his vast collection of music, Maggie - the final candidate - is his last hope. What he doesn’t know, however, is that this isn’t the first time that Maggie has been to Earl House, and it’s no coincidence that she applied for the job.
As a child, Maggie and her mother lived near the river that runs past the house. Maggie’s memories of that time are patchy, like pieces from a jigsaw puzzle that don’t quite fit: she remembers Kenneth’s son, William, and being alone, afraid. She also remembers - afterwards - returning home, mute, refusing to speak. For her, going back to Earl House as an adult offers the chance to fill in the gaps and finally, perhaps, lay the ghosts of her childhood to rest.
