Devastated by the loss of his adored wife Edie after 31 years of marriage Fraser Coleman now learns the painful truth that she was not as perfect as he believed her to be. You will be swept along by this compelling account of the revelations he faces involving not only his wife and the lives of his two daughters, but also the surprising identity of the father he lost when he was only five. His beloved mother Marjorie, now 91, frail, and battling to continue living independently, kept from Fraser and his sister Margaret the truth concerning their father's background, and how he died. In so doing she believed she was acting in her children's best interests, but now she regrets it, and wants to share all the details with them before it is too late. Fraser's older daughter, Sarah, who lives with her husband Michael, and their six-year-old twins, Kate and George, juggles the demands of her business and domestic life, trying to deal with the many pressures, which are often of her own making. His younger daughter, Joanna, a drop-out from university, and still undecided about about a career, has uncovered for herself unpalatable facts about her mother which have induced in her a cynical approach to life. Fraser, who has always taken the 'line of least resistance' is shocked by the new insights he gains into the complexity of human nature, but finds support and inspiration from his new friend Angela. As the twists and turns of the story unfold, and young George's life hangs in the balance, the reader will not be able to put the book down until all the skeletons have come out of the cupboard, the branches of the family tree have been strengthened, and the satisfying conclusion has been reached.
