Viv's marriage to David was not a conventional one, but when he died - in an accident for which she blamed herself - it was as if her whole world had collapsed around her.
She escaped by running, mainly around the nearby lake, which was once a popular place of recreation but was now desolate and deserted.
It became both her refuge and her dread. But through the misery she made some unexpected friends - a couple in the village whose family needed her as much as she needed them. And gradually, as a new life opened up, she could confront the terrible secrets which had haunted her and which could now be laid to rest.
