Alice is a single mum to three children. She lives in East Yorkshire and is not known for making the world's best life-decisions. So when she finds a man on the beach with nothing - no identity, no money, no jacket and no memory - no one thinks it is a good idea to take him in, not even Alice's own children, or Alice herself.
Denny, Alice's best friend is cautiously supportive, and they try to unravel the story.
Lily, new to London, having married the man of her dreams (who she hardly knows) three weeks ago in Kiev, and now having "lost" him is completely unravelled.
Meanwhile, back in 1993 in Surrey, a family of four meet a self-assured young man and befriend him too.
The three stories move at a gentle pace to start off, but then the danger, and the intrigue pick up. Who can be trusted?
