Summary

After the sudden loss of his wife, Michael Turner moves to London and develops a close friendship with the Nelson family next door.
Josh, Samantha and their two young daughters seem to represent everything Michael fears he may now never have. Despite this, the new friendship at first seems to offer the prospect of healing, but then a catastrophic event changes everything. Michael is left bearing the burden of a secret he must keep, but the truth can be kept at bay for only so long.

Didn’t enjoy this one

Listened to the whole book in the hope something exciting would happen: for me it didn’t.
So many back stories intertwining the main theme that I never felt it really ever got going.
I can’t help feeling I wasted a few hours of my life persevering!
