The Lie




From the bestselling author of Thursdays in the Park and The Anniversary comes a deeply moving, thought-provoking story about a woman torn between her past and future.

Romy was the perfect wife - until the day she received a letter claiming her husband was keeping a nasty secret. She wanted desperately to believe Michael was innocent, but the letter broke their marriage apart.

Three years later, Romy tentatively allows a friendship with her handsome neighbour to grow into something more. But her newfound happiness is suddenly shadowed by the news Michael has suffered a serious stroke.

Romy finds herself caught between two very different lives - and very different men - as she tries to do her duty to her husband, unravel the truth about his past, and find out where her heart truly lies.
