Top Ten bestseller Jane Fallon's new novel about discovering secrets and the price of keeping them

Since she was a little girl Jen always wanted a big, happy family. Being an only child with just her lonely mother for company was too gloomy for Jen. So when she married Jason and became part of the Masterson clan - a family that could easily have appeared in an Enid Blyton novel - she got exactly what she wanted. For years everything was perfect.

But then Jen sees something that she was never meant to see: a scratch on the gloss of her perfect life; a secret that will slowly but surely seep its way to the surface of her world and destroy everything in it.
