EDGAR AWARD WINNER * ANTHONY AWARD WINNER Can we ever escape our secrets? In the cobblestoned streets of Luxembourg, Kate Moore's days are filled with playdates and coffee mornings, her weekends spent in Paris and skiing in the Alps. But Kate is also guarding a tremendous, life-defining secret-one that's become so unbearable that it begins to unravel her newly established expat life.

Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader's guide and bonus content
