From the #1 bestselling author of The Night She Disappeared, The Family Upstairs and Then She Was Gone


When a tragedy breaks a family apart, what can bring it back together?

The Birds seem to be the perfect family: mother, father, four children, a picture-book cottage in the country.

But one Easter weekend, something happens - something so unexpected, so devastating, that no one can bring themselves to talk about it.

The family shatters, seemingly for good.

Until, years later, they are forced to return to the house they grew up in, and to confront what really broke the family apart . . .

Review quote

"Clever, intelligent and believable on a subject few of us really understand. Lorrie is one of the most vivid - and complex - characters I've read in years. Wonderful." Jojo Moyes "Simply stunning." Daily Mail "Poignant, heart-wrenching & beautifully told, the author's best tale yet." The Sun "Compelling... possibly the author's best yet... An intensely moving study of grief and family relationships, this is also a fantastically gripping story with a couple of powerful shocks." Hello! "Beautifully written." Heat
