A shocking secret…

Biddy and her older sister Lucy had always been close. In fact, Biddy’s older sister Lucy had taken full responsibility for her ever since they were children, and things are no different now that they’re adults. But when Lucy dies of pneumonia, Biddy finds herself alone for the first time in her life.

Revelling in her newfound freedom, she finds it hard to let anyone else impede on it. She decides to keep Lucy’s death secret, telling herself it’s just for a short while… but when the days turn into weeks, she starts to feel the strain. With a blossoming friendship with a local boy, Ginger Mudd, firmly underway, he provides a welcome relief from the pressure of her dark secret. But he’d never forgive her if he knew the truth… Will Biddy be able to cover up her sister’s death permanently, or will the shocking truth finally be revealed?

Playmates is a haunting tale of deception and secrets set against the cosy backdrop of a rural town.
