An absolutely gripping family drama about secrets and lies at the heart of a marriage. It's perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, Liane Moriarty, and Susan Lewis.
When Jo Harding falls down the stairs at home, she wakes up in hospital with partial amnesia - she's lost a whole year of memories.
A lot can happen in a year. Was Jo having an affair? Lying to her family? Starting a new life?
She can't remember what she did - or what happened the night she fell.
But she's beginning to realise she might not be as good a wife and mother as she thought.
