Lara's life looks perfect on the surface. Gorgeous doting husband Massimo, sweet little son Sandro and the perfect home. Lara knows something about Massimo. Something she can't tell anyone else or everything Massimo has worked so hard for will be destroyed: his job, their reputation, their son. This secret is keeping Lara a prisoner in her marriage.

I enjoyed this family tale with all it's twists and turns. It's a great holiday book and in part, was difficult to switch off.
Sadly, it was slightly spoilt by the narrator's awful Italian accent and I feel it would be much improved by not trying to imitate the accent at all.
