What do you remember, Jane? How much do you remember?
Jane is living a solitary life, estranged from her husband and son after her family is marked by a tragedy she cannot face. As she recovers from a debilitating bout of treatment for a serious illness, Jane is plagued by childhood memories and strange, underwater dreams of her beloved brother, Paul, who went missing as a teenager. Now he seems to be urging her to remember her long-buried past.
Her mind desperately seeking connections, Jane begins searching for Paul. But as she digs further into her brother's disappearance, she realizes she must untangle the web of lies from which she has woven her life and confront the devastating truth about her family. For only then can she begin to face up to her own part in its destruction . . .
Elizabeth Diamond spent many years writing poetry and working, amongst other things, as a home help, a shop assistant, a typist, and a special needs teacher, and dreaming of being a published author, until a chance place on a writers' development award, followed by an arts council grant, gave her the time to write her first novel - just to see `if she could'. The result was her debut novel, An Accidental Light. She lives in Devon, has two grown sons and three granddaughters.
