Synopsis

An apparently happy marriage. A beautiful son. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life to start all over again? Has she had a breakdown? Was it to escape her dysfunctional family - especially her flawed twin sister Caroline who always seemed to hate her? And what is the date that looms, threatening to force her to confront her past? No-one has ever guessed her secret. Will you?

The author reveals Emily's motivations for leaving her family with great patience and narrative skill... (there is) excellent dramatic pacing, dialogue and prose, culminating in poignant concluding chapters which examine Emily's decisions without sentimentality. An evocative, skillful novel about the price of escape. Recommended. Kirkus Reviews
