The River Home

by Hannah Richell

The River Home Synopsis

'Heart-rending' CLARE MACKINTOSH 'Utterly gripping' VERONICA HENRY 'There's something I need to tell you.' Eight years ago, Margot Sorrell left the crumbling family home in the Somerset countryside under a dark cloud, hoping never to return. And until she tells her two sisters why she ran away, they refuse to forgive her... But with her sisters' perfect lives starting to unravel, Margot knows she must go back. The river by her home has kept her secret all this time - as well as the memories of the terrible night that tore her family apart. As the past threatens to surface, will the truth destroy the Sorrell family - or bring them back together?
