A wonderful interwoven story about many couples whose fates and lives are interwoven in a complicated way.
Susannah and James outwardly have the perfect marriage, he is successful in business, she works as an estate agent, they have a, Matthew 14 from Susannah's previous marriage whom James loves like his own but are things what they seem?
No one knows that Susannah is trapped in a pretty much loveless marriage, just the security keeps her there and James' drinking is spiralling out of control.
Bronwyn Rykiert
James Agnew is a lawyer who is married to Susannah, a real estate agent, and they share her son Matthew. On the outside they look like they have a happy marriage but James is an alcoholic so there are many battles being fought behind closed doors, especially while James won’t acknowledge that he has a problem.

Robert Agnew, James’ younger brother is a PR man with his own business and he treats his women abominably – there is his ex wife Tabitha, who is still tied to him by their daughter Araminta
Rich people, huge houses, fancy dining, expensive apparels and aweful marriages.
Katie Grainger
Really did not enjoy this book, it was one of those novels about rich couples in perfect homes with awful marriages. The only character who I slightly connected with was Tabita but even her I found weak and irritating in places. The book ends predictably and unsatisfactorily it was a struggle to finish.
Surprisingly good, I was expecting a bit of a wishy washy book but it turned out to be something with guts - not bad.
Awful book. I didn't even bother to finish it.
