Twenty-four years after a young Helena spends a magical holiday in Cyprus (where she fell in love for the first time), she returns to spend the summer there with her family.
Her godfather leaves the now crumbling house, ‘Pandora’, to her but as soon as Helena arrives, it’s apparent its idyllic beauty masks a web of secrets that she has kept from her husband and son.
At the difficult age of 13, her son Alex is torn between protecting his beloved mother, and growing up but equally desperate to learn the truth about his real father.
WhenHelena meets her childhood sweetheart, a chain of events is set in motion that threatens to make her past and present collide. Both Helena and Alex know that life will never be the same, once Pandora’s secrets have been, revealed.
