With the insight, compassion, and life-affirming drama that have invited comparisons to Rosamunde Pilcher, Lucy Clare, author of Hoping for Hope, gives readers another unforgettable protagonist in Clattie Palmer: mother, widow, and a woman just coming into her own.

When Jack dies, he leaves behind Clattie, his wife of more than half a century, and three grown children. He also leaves a devastating secret: the child he fathered with another woman. Clattie is left to tell her children about the brother they never knew they had.

As her children, Ralph, Pippa, and Hugh, struggle to adjust to the realization that they have a half-brother, Clattie finds that a new life has grown from her old one.

Breaking the Trust is about the limiting-and liberating-bonds of familial love, which try our patience, test our courage, and arouse our deepest angers and fiercest feelings of love.
