Returning to the UK to bury her father and pack up her childhood home, she slowly begins to realise that her life is not at all as she understood it. The novel opens with four stylistically different, stand alone, short stories which take us back to the 1700’s, through the nineteen forties and fifties, and forward into the future.

As Ophelia starts to discover the discrepancies and inconsistencies inherent in her life, it becomes apparent that the events in the short stories have affected her choices. The novel explores identity, loss, the nature of truth and how the same circumstances may be perceived by different people in different ways.

It uses the device of handcrafts - embroidery, weaving, and tapestry - as an allegory for women’s communication.
