The Story Graph


Fate can conspire to put two people in the exact right place at the exact right time. And just as easily it can tear them apart.

As winter turns to spring on the North Cornish coast, Kerensa O’Connell receives an unexpected message relating to a passionate relationship from deep in her past. A message which stirs up vivid memories, and threatens to derail the comfortable life she has created for herself after years of drifting.

While the world is forced to press the pause button, Kerensa battles both mental and physical health issues and has no choice but to slow down and confront the demons that have plagued her throughout her life.

Simultaneously unfolding over a few months and several decades, the story moves from the windswept plains of East Africa to the stunning islands of the Great Barrier Reef, the tranquil mountains of the Himalayas, and the bustling cities of Europe. Kerensa confronts happiness and heartbreak through the lens of her camera and her connection to the people she loves. Piecing together her memories of love, loss, and adventure, she starts to make sense of the choices she has made and question the internal chaos that has always defined her.

Finally the secret she has been kept buried for years comes to light and Kerensa must decide once and for all what she is looking for from life and whom she wants by her side.

An unforgettable love story about wanderlust, heartbreak and colliding life paths.

A lyrical meditation on the importance of our memories and a reminder that sometimes, letting go of the past can take a whole lifetime.

Author Bio

Siobhan Murphy a contemporary women’s fiction writer based in the UK. Over the years she’s drifted around the world in search of adventure, hoping to figure out what to do with her life. She is not sure if she’s found the answers, but loves to learn and has always wanted to write books.

As an impulsive and easily bored individual with hundreds of ideas spinning around her brain on any given day, she has turned her hand to many jobs over the years. Her favourite job was as a bookseller for Waterstones, recommending books to customers and applying those 3 for 2 stickers that people find so hard to remove. For the last 17 years she has been a professional photographer, taking portraits of humans – often the really, really small ones.  

She is unable to use 3 words where 300 will do and suffers from a condition called Pareidolia, which causes her to see faces in everyday objects. Her hobbies include eating sweets, talking nonsense and walking into rooms wondering why she is there.  She overthinks everything so will no doubt keep deleting and re-writing this bio for the forseeable future.
