Three women, connected by one man: Daniel is father to Seren, husband to Nesta and lover to Frankie. When he leaves Nesta and their beautiful home in the middle of the party to celebrate their fortieth wedding anniversary Seren's world begins to crumble.
Only the continuation of the family ideal can make things right. But Nesta isn't so sure. And for Frankie, Daniel offers hope of a safe and secure future. But all three women are carrying secrets that they've kept hidden even from those closest to them. Secrets that might even threaten a life.

Really enjoyable as family drama with strong romantic component that will appeal largely but not exclusively to female readers. The changing viewpoints provide depth to the unexpected separation of Daniel and Nesta. It affects their daughter Seren, too, who tries to find dirt on her father's new mistress, only to find surprises.
Quite slowly burning suspense builds up and comes to a crescendo.
I really enjoyed the characters in this novel and the impersonations by the narrator. Although I started this book in a busy period of my life, I raced through it, taking every opportunity to listen.
Most, I enjoyed the profound goodness of some of the characters and their admirable way to deal with bad situations in the right way. In our time of suing culture and increased self-involvement I found this book a refreshing reminder of human values, a cosy refuge with some amazing role models.
Pace and plotting are well handled and the narrator is making this a pleasure to read. Hugely enjoyable
