Point-to-point jockey Jess Haddon has maintained a resolute silence about the identity of the father of her little daughter, Izzy.
But that hasn't stopped the rumours swirling around their small Dorset village.
Izzy's adoring grandmother Belinda is not the only one who believes Jess must have had a fling with charming Johnnie Bearsden before he moved to America with his family.
Belinda is certain Jess's secret cannot be kept for ever. And when she discovers Johnnie is back in the area, she knows everything is about to change.
Sooner or later the story must break, and when it does, there will surely be terrible consequences.
