What does it take for a woman to assume a completely new identity? Samantha knows. She has reinvented herself as Mrs Dale Cassinari; mother of Joe and Tony; honorary Italian daughter-in-law of Maria; good neighbour to Maeve; Stayfleurs supermarket supervisor. Only she knows that all this frantic activity is a cover for a past that she's determined to forget. A past that threatens to come back to haunt her in the shape of a letter addressed to Samantha Powel.
