A book that will sit on your shoulder for sometime after reading it. It concerns grief, reconciliation, infidelity, marriage and family upheavals and eventual honesty all in a beautiful Italian holiday setting. The author used to write entertaining chic-lit, here she has grown up.

Synopsis

Other People's Secrets by Louise Candlish

Ginny and Adam Trustlove arrive on holiday in Italy torn apart by personal tragedy. Two weeks in a boathouse on the edge of peaceful Lake Orta is exactly what they need to restore their faith in life - and each other. Twenty-four hours later, the silence is broken. The Sale family have arrived at the main villa: wealthy, high-flying Marty, his beautiful wife Bea, and their privileged, confident offspring. It doesn't take long for Ginny and Adam to be drawn in, especially when the teenage Pippi introduces a new friend into the circle. For there is something about Zach that has everyone instantly beguiled, something that loosens old secrets - and creates shocking new ones. And, yet, not one of them suspects that his arrival in their lives might be anything other than accidental ...
