What’s It About

When artist Siôn goes to stay in the coastal village of Rosewick Bay, he’s hoping for a few quiet months to recover from his recent breakdown. He isn’t expecting the drowned man who shows up in his bedroom at dawn, or the ghost’s great-great-grandson, Mattie. As Siôn and Mattie try to find out the true story behind the haunting, Siôn is drawn to flirty, confident Mattie. He must overcome his own doubts and shame to have a chance with Mattie.

But the ghosts of Rosewick have secrets of their own, and so does Mattie…

First paragraph:

Siôn dreamed he went back to the bridge again, stepping out along the pedestrian walkway with his camera banging against his chest where it hung uselessly. The fog was just as deep as it had been on that day in March, wrapping around him like a bag around his head. It muffled his steps and made even the occasional rumble of passing lorries sound far, far away. It closed behind him, hiding the north bank and the river below. As he walked he became convinced that he would never reach the far end, that he would walk forever through this damp grey shadow of a world.

Gradually, just like the first time, his steps slowed until he just stood where he was. A bleak quiet conviction settled over him.

He was completely alone in the world.
