The USA Today and Kindle Top #25 Bestseller

‘A real tear-jerker’ THE SUN

‘A stunning read’ MIRANDA DICKINSON

For a decade, Hannah’s life has been pretty close to perfect – she has a great job, she’s married to Mark, and her child-free existence means she’s free as a bird. The only sadness in her life is a fall-out with her sister Diane, who hasn’t spoken to her in over ten years. But now Diane is on her doorstep – and this time, she’s got her teenage daughter Mia in tow.

When Diane asks if Mia can stay with Hannah and Mark for a few days, Hannah is glad of the chance to get to know her niece. But as the days turn into weeks and Diane doesn’t return, Hannah begins to worry. Why hasn’t her sister been in touch?

Diane is carrying a devastating secret that will destroy Hannah’s carefully constructed life. But how much is she willing to reveal – and when will she pick her moment?

An emotional story that delves into the true meaning of family, sisterhood and secrets. Perfect for fans of Kerry Fisher’s The Silent Wife and Hannah Beckerman’s If Only I Could Tell You.

Dirty pool Why doesn’t the author tell us the sisters were IDENTICAL TWINS until after one of them is dead? Part of the fun of reading a mystery is trying to guess the ending. Without knowing the twin factor, it’s impossible to figure out the ending. The book was also way too long due to repetitions, over analysis, and useless scenes. For example, what was the purpose of Mia and Todd stealing booze, then not drinking it. Go figure. And will Mark ever reveal his paternity? I got so frustrated by…

Skip it. two of the most common, basic pieces of advice that writers get, from a very early age, are “write what you know,” and “show, don’t tell.”This author would have benefited to take heed of any of that.It’s like he pulled random topics from a jar and was told to use them in a story, the way third graders have to use each vocabulary word in a sentence.
