They all have secrets. ‘Both funny and engaging while tackling some serious stuff’ Jane Fallon ‘Deft, wry and perceptive, this drama targets class and modern parenting’ Daily Mail They all have opinions. They all have secrets. ‘Both funny and engaging while tackling some serious stuff’ Jane Fallon ‘Deft, wry and perceptive, this drama targets class and modern parenting’ Daily Mail ‘Set to be one of the most talked-about books of 2022’ HELLO! ‘Sensitive, sharply observed and often funny’ Adele Parks, Platinum ‘Touted as the new Liane Moriarty, Stovell is one to watch’ Woman & Home ‘Cringe-inducing, agonising, truthful, heartbreaking and hilarious’ Janice Hallett In a small town like West Burntridge, it should be impossible to keep a secret. Rachel Saunders knows gossip is the price you pay for a rural lifestyle and outstanding schools. The latest town scandal is her divorce – and the fact that her new girlfriend has moved into the family home. Laura Spence lives in a poky bedsit on the wrong side of town. She and her son Max don’t really belong, and his violent tantrums are threatening to expose the very thing she’s trying to hide. When the local school introduces a new inclusive curriculum, Rachel and Laura find themselves on opposite sides of a fearsome debate. But the problem with having your nose in everyone else’s business is that you often miss what is happening in your own home.
