_____________

Two ordinary families. One life-changing day . . .

When the Gleesons and the Stanhopes become neighbours, lonely Lena Gleeson wants a friend. But Anne Stanhope - cold, elegant, unstable - wants to be left alone.

It's left to their children - Lena's youngest, Kate, and Anne's only child, Peter - to find their way to one another.

To form a friendship whose resilience and love will be almost broken by the fault line dividing both families, and a tragedy that will engulf them all.

A tragedy whose true origins only become clear many years later . . .

When everything has fallen apart, can their children's love pull it back together again?
