You think you have the perfect life.

Some of which can be devastating.

Review quote

"An emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped until the end." * Daily Mail, Books of the Year * "Something of a moral fable about modern relationships, this is a smart and enjoyable story" * Sunday Mirror * "A moving read from one of our fave authors" * Fabulous Mag, Sun on Sunday * "The narrative dips back and forth with various points of view from stunningly drawn characters and I devoured it in one long sitting. Take this to the beach, or indeed anywhere - I promise you won't regret it." * Daily Mail * "Prepare to totally forget about your family as you become immersed in someone else's." * Stellar Magazine *
