A heart-rending tale of a family in turmoil after the death of a child is kept secret from one of his siblings.

When their eldest son drowns overseas, Gill and Gabe, desperate to protect their unwell teenaged daughter from the news, decide they must hide the truth from her at all costs - a decision that has ripple effects throughout their family. Told through alternating perspectives, with frequent flashbacks to the past, the story unfurls, revealing the key moments that have shaped each character into the people they are today.

For readers of Celeste Ng, Delia Owens and Anne Tyler, this dramatic, poetic novel shows how it's possible to find a way through grief, against all the odds.
