Each week she posts a photo that could be the cover of a book. The aim is to:
‘Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.’

Clearing out her late father-in-law’s house, Carol finds a photograph in a book. On the back are the words, ‘Remember me. Berlin 1976. Angelika Brandt.’ A telephone number is scribbled in the corner but the photo has been torn and the number is incomplete.
Carol determines to discover more about Angelika and travels to Berlin. Her husband insists on accompanying her. Marcus claims to know nothing of the mystery woman but seems uneasy. After a while Carol suspects that Marcus is hindering her research and starts to wonder what influence this woman yields. Was she associated with Marcus’ father or was it Marcus who knew her?
As she draws nearer the truth she realises that she is about to uncover a dark secret that has been hidden for more than thirty years. Her husband and the family that she thought she knew are changing before her eyes.
