WHEN A CHANCE DISCOVERY TEARS YOUR WORLD APART, CAN YOU MAKE A NEW START?

Jess Tavener would have said that her life in a Somerset market town, with her husband Matt and their small daughter Lucy, was happy and settled. The recent death of her beloved father had cast the only shadow on their tranquil domesticity.

But when she returns to work after her bereavement, she finds a sketch, drawn by Matt, of her father, which turns her world upside down and she begins to realize that her family and friends have secrets which, as they are gradually revealed, affect the foundations of all their lives.

Can she work through the heartbreak and loss to reach out to a new, and different, kind of happiness?
