'Achingly poignant . . . An absolutely brilliant read' Sunday Mirror
Beginnings, middles and ends; Peggy, Serena, Natasha and Bel. This is the room that binds them, this is how consequences work . . .
In deepest Cornwall, the mansion Kittiwake has seen many pass through its doors since it was bought by American heiress Peggy Carmichael seventy years ago.
Over the decades, the keys have been handed down through the family, and now it belongs to Bel's adoptive brother, Lance. It's where he'll be celebrating his fiftieth birthday, and Bel is invited.
But Bel barely feels like she's holding it together as it is, and in going back to Kittiwake, she will be returning to the place where it all began - where, following the death of a child, a sequence of events was set in motion, the consequences of which are still rippling down through the generations . . .
From Sunday Times bestselling author Jenny Eclair comes an utterly compelling new novel of family secrets that will stay with you long after you've turned the last page.

Funny of course but tragic, deep and poignant.
Simply wonderful read
Jenny Eclair has excelled herself. I just didn’t want the book to end. The story is so cleverly woven together and the characters are all ones that have flaws we can tut tut at and yet feel sympathy for at the same time. Jenny’s unique brand of humour had me laughing out loud and my husband looking over at me like as though he thought I had lost the plot. Strongly recommend.
