A woman with buried secrets, a man whose past threatens to overwhelm him...
Making peace with the past can be the hardest thing to do...
Madeline seems to be a woman in control - of her work, her relationships, her whole calm, clockwork life. But beneath the surface, she is haunted by a tragedy which she locked away long ago.
When she meets Flynn, a troubled war photographer, she is thrown into turmoil. He too has a traumatic past, a history which he cannot contain. Disturbing memories have begun to overwhelm him, threatening his marriage, his relationship with his children and his career in the process.
Thrown together in their struggle to cope, they connect in a way that is as terrifying as it is exhilarating. But to move on with their lives, they must face up to - and deal with - not only the present and their powerful feelings for one another, but the ghosts that have haunted them for so long...

"The novel is a love story and engages at that level... [and also] an intriguing novel, which should appeal equally to anyone who has been in therapy, anyone who is curious what therapist and their clients talk about, and anyone who needs therapy themselves. It is a big constituency." SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
`Healing Flynn deals intelligently with relationships and uses highly charged dramatic events to suggest similarly intense emotional landscapes. Powerful stuff.' CLOSER
`Juliette Mead uses the power of love to broach the subjects of loss, suffering and human relations. We are presented with two powerful insights into how a man reacts and deals with a war situation and what the loss of a child can mean to a woman.' PUNCH
