Michael tries rewriting the truth of events at the Nelsons', while the major learns his mission’s outcome. Read by Mark Bazeley.
Major McCullen learns the true outcome of his mission and Michael tries to rewrite the truth of what happened in the Nelsons' house.
Owen Sheers' compelling story of the search for truth, the burden of secrets and the desire for redemption. It explores how our lives are interconnected, even in today's increasingly depersonalised, globalised world.
After the sudden loss of his wife, writer Michael Turner moves to London and develops a close friendship with the Nelsons, who live next door - Josh, Samantha and their two young daughters Lucy and Rachel. The family seem to represent everything Michael fears he may now never have: intimacy, children, stability and a family home. The new friendship at first seems to offer the prospect of healing, but then a catastrophic event changes everything.
