Switched at birth, Rose and Rachel's destinies have long been interwoven. Rachel, brought up by the generous and wise Sylvie, not only unwittingly deprived Rose of her true mother, but - by marrying Brian - stole away her first great love. Rose's anger and resentment gathers strength when her son Drew announces his engagement to Rachel's emotionally unbalanced daughter, Iris. But a greater danger threatens to engulf them all. Nearly half a century ago, Sylvie made an agonising decision. Now, knowing death is close, she must finally choose between the intricate web of lies behind which she shields her family and a truth that will shatter the lives of both her daughters... Rich in passion and drama, Eileen Goudge's compelling sequel to her best-selling Garden of Lies will keep you captivated to the very last word.
