Blackwell North Amer
A young woman named Alice Raikes boards a trains to Scotland to visit her family. But when she arrives, she witnesses something so shocking that she insists on returning to London that very minute. Only a few hours later, Alice is lying in a coma after an accident that might or might not have been a suicide attempt. With Alice's life hanging in the balance, her family gathers at her bedside. As they wait, argue, and remember, long-buried tensions rise to the surface. The more they talk, the more, it seems, they conceal from each other. Alice, meanwhile, sliding between different levels of consciousness, recalls her past and the end of a tragic love affair.

This is a novel about love and loss. It is told from several perspectives, in non-sequential time-frames. It verges on but never indulges in melodrama and is very well-written.
