Recently divorced, Tessa Parker runs a successful B&B in a seaside town. During a surprise visit from Australia, a long-lost aunt lets slip a family secret that unsettles her fragile world. In shock, and feeling betrayed by her whole family, Tessa confides in her ex-husband just as he reveals he has a new woman in his life.
Struck unexpectedly by jealousy; balancing her own turmoil against the demands of parenting, Tessa tries to trace her birth father, with devastating results. Yet she fails to see how this is a crucial moment in her children's lives. If she gets things wrong, the consequences could be fatal.
"A moving novel, as a well as a convincing one, and it shows with great clarity how past crimes and well-meaning manipulation damage families for years afterwards" (N.J. Cooper, BookOxygen)

Interesting story, worth including in any library
It was a good book, not a fantastic book but good nonetheless. I kind of guessed what was going to happen but still wanted to listen to the end
Possibly depending on the content
Flexible, interesting and warm
Main character is frustrating but a good listen
Overview of motherhood
At last the lead character has woken up and checked the facts and stopped being so insecure in her relationships
Unbelievable that in today's world any woman would be so insecure that she did not check the facts she was told by a known murderer.
