Love and its consequences last a lifetime...
Kate Morgan is about to celebrate twenty five years of marriage to Paddy. But the secret she has kept all this time is about to be discovered.
Erin Hopkins has always known that she is different from the rest of her family. Over the years she has begun to put the pieces together and now she has to discover who she really is and where she comes from.
Nina Hopkins has always put her marriage and family before everything. But now she must face up to the truth as her daughter is prepared to run off and search for a woman she doesn't know.
There is no escaping the past. Kate, Erin and Nina all have to come to terms with what happened so many years before, and to find their own way of dealing with it.
“Marita Conlon-McKenna handles this story with exceptional grace... deeply moving... the story in itself is enough to keep the pages turning but there is much more in this utterly contemporary book. It's packed full of humour, love and financial woes that charts Dublin better than any map.”
