About the book

Veronica and Marieke have been friends since childhood. As grown up women, faithful Marieke is still standing in the shadow of the charismatic Veronica.

When Veronica’s aunt Klara dies, a chain of events is started that will ultimately change both the foundation of their friendship and the paths that their lives are taking.

They leave their families in a cold and dark Stockholm to travel in Klara’s footsteps, to Langkawi and San Francisco – places that meant a lot to her.

During the trip, Marieke and Veronica discover completely new sides of Klara but also surprising traits in themselves. When they meet the enigmatic pianist James, a rivalrous triangle is formed that can only lead to disaster. Or could it be the beginning of something new?
