She wouldn't be comfortable if she sat on a sofa in Heal's. Unable to sleep, she thinks a new pillow might be the answer. William and Lucy are not connected. Yet the pair of them share a terrible memory from the past - the sort of joint recollection that changes with the light, depending on who you were and where you were standing at the time.

Amid the ruins of her latest relationship, Polly Waterford moves far away to the sleepy seaside resort of Mount Polbearne, where she lives in a small, lonely flat above an abandoned shop.
