He was meant to be the perfect man, until she discovered the hidden truth . . . The gripping story of love, heartbreak and one devastating confession that changes everything
FROM THE MILLION-COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THURSDAYS IN THE PARK AND THE AFFAIR
Sara Tempest has been alone since her husband died and daughters left home.
But over the course of one summer she falls in love with the charming Bernard – years of heartache and loneliness finally behind her – and moves into his beautiful home on the wind-battered cliffs of Hastings.
But soon she begins to wonder if Bernard is all he seems . . .
He’s barely in touch with his children. Stifling reminders of his wife appear everywhere Sara looks.
And then comes Bernard’s confession.
All too quickly, Sara’s newfound happiness starts to crumble around her . . .
