Lucy Murphy has a single goal in life - to give her children a brilliant future.
An unplanned pregnancy forced Lucy to abandon her dreams. So she is determined that her twin son and daughter will seize every opportunity. When they get a chance to move to a prestigious school, and away from everything familiar, all Lucy sees is the fulfilment of every wish she's ever had for them.
Loving them as fiercely as she does, Lucy is blind to the risks of dropping two 17-year-olds into an alien world. Even when warning signs are flashing, she cannot see the dangers of forcing her vision on her children - particularly her sensitive daughter - until it's almost too late.
Our Secrets and Lies is a moving, gripping and thought-provoking story about a mother learning the hardest lessons of all - how to stop living through her children and how to find herself again.
