Secrets and lies can lurk beneath even the closest of relationships . . . From the outside, the close-knit circle of friends calling themselves ‘the Castaways’ share an idyllic lifestyle, blessed with money, children, beauty and love.
But when Tess and Greg are killed in a tragic boating accident, orphaning their seven-year-old twins, it sends devastating shockwaves through the rest of the group.
As the friends grieve, the truth behind their relationships gradually begins to emerge in a chain of staggering revelations. And for the first time they are forced to ask the hardest of questions.
