Publisher's Summary

How do you escape what you can’t remember?
She can run. But can she hide?
Helen Graham is a new arrival in a tiny Yorkshire village, renting dilapidated Wildfell Hall. The villagers are intensely curious - what makes her so jumpy, and why is she so evasive?
Their interest is Helen's worst nightmare. Looking over her shoulder every day, she tries to piece together her past before it can catch up with her. With everything she knows in fragments, from her marriage to her career as a war photographer, how can she work out who to trust and what to believe? Most days she can barely remember who she is....

How long?

Got to Chapter 14 and realised there were 21 more to go. Decided not to finish it and waste my life away any longer. So boring.
