By Marianne Kavanagh
A fascinating character study and portrait of a small community that will leave you questioning all of your assumptions.
You don't know what's really going on in Sara's house... Or in her head.
Sara is lonely. No one talks to her - not her bad-tempered workaholic husband, nor her two beloved sons. Her solace is her house, the biggest in the village, hidden away behind high hedges.
Then she strikes up a friendship with Katie, a college student living nearby. A new world opens up - neighbours who have been dying to get to know her, and who rally round when Sara is devastated by a terrible accident.
But nothing is quite what it seems. Faced with shocking revelations about her husband and new-found friends, Sara realises she has no choice: she must act to protect the safety of those she loves.
