Are some things better left unfound? Best friends Louise and Emma grew up next door to each other in a grim inner-city suburb of Dublin. Now Louise, an art conservator, is thousands of miles away in Sydney, restoring a beautiful old painting. She meets Dan, whose family welcome her as one of their own, but she will always feel lost until she finds her mother who walked out when she was just eight years old. Back in Dublin, Emma is stuck in a job where she is under-appreciated and underpaid, but her biggest worry is her ex-partner, Jamie. Emma has lost so much because of Jamie: her innocence, her reputation, almost her life. Now she is at risk of losing Isla, her young daughter. So where is Louise's mother? Will Emma ever be free of her ex? Both women frantically search for answers, but when the truth finally emerges it is more shattering than they had ever expected. Praise for Ber Carroll: 'I enjoyed every page of this touching, authentic novel.' - LIANE MORIARTY 'Ber Carroll has a clever eye for characterisation and story.' - CATHY KELLY 'With all the humour and empathy of Binchy... Carroll captures the conflicts and compromises women make.' - DAILY TELEGRAPH

About Ber Carroll

Ber Carroll was born in Blarney, County Cork, and moved to Australia in 1995. Her first novel, Executive Affair, was inspired by her initial impressions of Sydney, and her exciting, dynamic work environment at the time. Ber now lives in Sydney's northern beaches with her husband and two children, whose constant interruptions of "Mum... Mum!" are no help at all to the writing process. Still, though, she loves them very much and has dedicated this novel, her fifth, to them both.Ber's novels have been published in five countries, including Ireland.
