Two sisters. One secret. A journey to learn who they really are...
'I really, really loved it. I think it's her best book so far, written with maturity and great compassion. The characters are very relatable, Lou was my favourite...I enjoyed this book so much.' MARIAN KEYES

'A beautiful, tender story of family, lies, secrets and the power of sisterhood. A perfect book to curl up by the fire and escape with. I read it in one sitting.' SINEAD MORIARTY

'Gripping and emotional . . . filled with nuggets of wisdom, compassion and humour, Cathy Kelly proves, yet again, that she knows everything there is to know about women' PATRICIA SCANLAN

As the waves crash on to a wild Atlantic beach, Lou is at a crossroads. For the first time ever, just giving up seems like an option.

In just one night, at her own 50th birthday, her world has imploded. Her mother has kept a secret hidden all her life. And it changes everything. Before Lou can take another step, she needs to get to the bottom of the shocking truth that alters who she really is.

Along with her sister, Toni, who is facing her own crisis, the two women sets out on a life-changing journey - one that will take them through Ireland's wildest coastline and to Sicily's sun-baked rocky shores. It will also take Lou deep into her relationships with her mother, her sister and her daughter to figure out how to stop pleasing everyone else - and carve out who she really wants to be.
