Flight by Isabel Ashdown
Myriad Editions, 2015

When Wren’s numbers come up in the first ever national lottery draw, she doesn’t tell her husband, Rob.

Instead she quietly packs her bags, kisses her six-month-old daughter Phoebe goodbye, and leaves.  Two decades later, Rob has moved on and found happiness with their oldest friend, Laura.  Phoebe, now a young woman, has never known any other life.  But when Rob receives a mysterious letter, the past comes back to haunt them all.

Moving between the majestic coastline of North Cornwall and the leafy suburbs of London, Flight is a story of secrets and lies – and of the indelible traces that are left behind when someone tries to disappear.

‘Brilliantly told.  Ashdown’s novel exemplifies contemporary fiction that explores the dynamics and complexities of family life’
