The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton

Catherine Alliott

From the bestselling author of One Day in May and A Crowded Marriage comes a heart-warming look at what happens when your whole world is turned upside-down.

Evie Hamilton has a secret . . . one she doesn't even know about. Yet . . .

Evie's an Oxfordshire wife and mum whose biggest worry in life is whether or not she can fit in a manicure on her way to fetch her daughter from clarinet lessons. But she's blissfully unaware that her charmed and happy life is about to be turned upside-down.

For one sunny morning a letter lands on Evie's immaculate doormat. It's a bombshell, knocking her carefully arranged and managed world completely askew and it threatens to sabotage all she holds dear.

What will be left and what will change forever? Is Evie strong enough to fight for what she loves? Can her entire world really be as fragile as her best china?
