A contemporary novel from the author of A Woman of Substance about a young woman finding herself and her place in life, in love and in the world. Valentine Denning is a courageous photojournalist on the frontline in Kosovo.
Her colleagues - Tony Hampton and American Jake Newberg - are her comrades-in-arms, men whom she loves and trusts.
One is her best friend; one her lover. In a nightmarish ambush, all three are shot, Tony fatally, and for Val an even worse nightmare begins. For there are memories and lies - lies which force Val to find herself again by leaving her past life of heart-breaking war-danger for what seems like the gentler world of celebrity-shoots: but this too brings danger - a famous artist whose reputation as a playboy does not steel against a powerful attraction.
Valentine's sense of searching for something leads her to retrace paths which she thought she had left behind.
