AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A Sydney family's picture-perfect life is upended in an unputdownable new novel from the bestselling author of The Mothers.

'What if the worst day of your life turns out to be the making of you?

'With two bright children, a beautiful home and a husband she's always depended on, Lilian Hogarth considers herself blessed. Until, on her son Jamie's final day of high school, he fails to come home. Hospitalised by a coward's punch, Jamie has been the victim of a muck-up day celebration that went too far.

'Lilian's support is unflinching, even as her world begins to crumble. A son whose fate hangs in the balance, a teenage witness who refuses to name the one who threw the punch, and a husband who's hiding a secret that could destroy their marriage . . .

'Is this the end of the Hogarth family's good luck? Or will Jamie's determination—and Lilian's love—be the making of them?' (Publication summary)
