Tell your most devastating secret, or risk losing your only daughter…
Then: Twenty years ago, Alys’ husband, Sam, was in a terrible car accident that left him fighting for his life. His recovery was slow and painful and, just at the point when Alys began to hope, he sent her away, refusing to see her ever again for reasons she could never understand.
Now: Married again and living in a new town with a new family, Alys feels like she’s sleepwalking through life. She’s just lost her job, her grown-up daughter is flying the nest, and her new husband doesn’t see – or even seem to care about – the downward spiral she is in.
But a chance encounter changes everything. As the life she could have had crashes into the one she settled for, Alys must decide whether or not to reveal the lie she’s been telling everyone all these years. Will it tear apart the ones she loves, or could it set them free?
You are young and in love. You know exactly how you want your life to be and then life happens.
After a devastating event, your world is dark. Little by little there is light at the end of the tunnel and you start feeling like your old self again, but then you are hit by a rock yet again.
You are totally down and broken when someone reaches out a hand to you and you take it gladly. You are slowly starting to live again.
But are you really living again or are you being lived? One look in the mirror tells you you are not you anymore. You have turned into someone you don’t want to be any longer. You only started to realize this after a shocking encounter.
Whose fault is it you became who you are now? The one who broke your heart? The one you helped you heal? Or you? There is only one person who can do something about it and she is starting back at you.
A great story about lies and deceit and even though you can hide them for several years, one day everybody will have to come clean and face the music. 5 stars

About the author
After a varied career, Emma Davies once worked for a design studio where she was asked to provide a fun and humorous (and not necessarily true) anecdote for their website. She wrote the following: ‘I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.’ Well the job in the design studio didn’t work out but she’s now a forty something mother of three and is happy to report the rest of her dream came true.
After many years as a finance manager she now writes full time and is far happier playing with words than numbers. She lives with her husband, three children, and two guinea pigs in rural Shropshire where she writes in all the gaps in between real life. It’s a county she adores, her love of its beautiful people and landscapes providing endless inspiration for her books, and in fact the only thing that would make Shropshire more idyllic is if it were by the sea.
