Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Madeleine Frank, born and raised in Key West, the southern-most island of the USA, is the daughter of a mentally unstable Cuban mother and an internationally renowned English artist. Losing her husband in a freak accident, Madeleine follows her parents to England where she trains and practises as a psychotherapist. At a time when she is finally starting to heal and forget the scars of her past, the precarious equilibrium of her life is thrown off-balance by the appearance of a new client, Rachel. Damaged and mistrustful of therapy, Rachel is willing to try anything to help break away from her Ukrainian lover, who has subjected her to years of brutality and now threatens to kidnap and disappear with her son. The increasingly complex attachment between Madeleine and Rachel will lead them into a turbulent maelstrom which neither could have predicted - and which neither is able to control. And at the heart of it all lies the fate of a child.
