When a conversation with her husband triggers
questions, Rose Parker uncovers alarming answers that shatter her perfect life.
But it is only when she shoves her belongings in her SUV and drives off that
Rose realizes just how far from perfect her life actually was. She has nowhere
While debating between distressing sleeping
arrangements–her mother’s house full of questions or a hotel room with too much
solitude–Rose bumps into an acquaintance from her gardening class and allows
bubbly, exuberant Becky to indulge her in a wild night full of whiskey,
weeping, and whispered confidences. Suddenly, Rose has a new friend, a roof
over her head, and two gorgeous men moving her out of her marital home.
As Rose struggles to settle into her new life,
she remains determined to comprehend her past. And with time and distance and
especially wine, comes knowledge. Frank wasn’t the only one lying to her. Rose
was lying to herself.

Fen works in a bookshop and is devoted to her young son, Connor, but she keeps herself to herself. Haunted by guilt and a terrible secret, Fen lives a life isolated from her family, far from home and too afraid of the past to risk becoming close to anyone. She is constantly looking over her shoulder, knowing that one day the truth will catch up with her.
Sean, on the other hand, is enjoying a seemingly perfect life. He has a successful career, lives in his dream home and adores his beautiful wife, Belle, and their six-year-old daughter, Amy. That is until the day Belle announces she has found someone else and wants Sean to move out.
Circumstance throws Fen and Sean together. Slowly their quiet friendship turns into something much deeper and the joy they find in one another eventually gives them the confidence to trust and love again.
But will the past tear them apart just as they find happiness?
