Australian author, Sally Hepworth, has created a family drama set in an Australian suburb. Three married couples all appear to have perfect lives until peeking beneath the surface. Essie has 2 children and a husband she adores. She is close to her mother who helps out all she can. Yet she has a secret and all is not as it seems. Fran and Nigel are another couple who seem to have it all. Fran, however, is afraid she will lose Nigel if she is honest with him. Ange and Lucas are the third couple living on the same street. Ange would like to believe she has the most wonderful marriage, but is suspicious there might be something her husband is keeping from her. When a single woman moves in next door, each family is exposed and secrets are revealed. Recommended.
