Newly-pregnant Dr Beth Nichols was happily engaged to Liam Darrah, a fellow doctor. She had no idea she was being stalked by ex-patient Edwin Evans as she made her way home one evening after a late shift at the hospital. After being anaesthetised she woke up in Edwin s basement, held against her will, and eventually giving birth there without medical help.
The story is written from different perspectives; from Beth s 9 year old daughter Amy who is born in captivity, and from Beth herself as she unwillingly finds herself pregnant years later with Edwin s baby. She subsequently gives birth to a son, Joss. Joss and Edwin also tell their stories16 years later.
When Beth gets the chance to escape, the Press get hold of the story and Beth and Amy have their photo in the newspaper. The photo is seen by Liam, who has made another life for himself back in his homeland of Canada with his new partner Patty and their son Toby, thinking Beth had been murdered years before. Liam must make the difficult choice of either meeting up with Beth again and getting to know his daughter, or staying where he is in Toronto.
The story then runs ahead 16 years to the point where Joss finds out who his real father is, now a patient in a secure mental hospital. Joss wants to get to know him, and makes a journey against his mother s wishes to see his real father. However, the much-anticipated meeting does not go quite to plan; Edwin still seems obsessed with Beth, and Joss feels unloved and unwanted. He makes the mistake of telling Edwin where the family are living, and when Edwin is eventually released he comes looking to claim Beth back again. The upset this visit causes to the family teaches Joss just who does love him, and whom he ought to consider as his actual real father.
