Our secrets and lies

by Sinéad Moriarty | 06 September 2018
Category: Irish Fiction
'Moriarty [tackles] uncomfortable and painful subjects, weaving them into compelling thought-provoking stories ... heartfelt and deeply moving' Irish Independent The new novel from the Richard and Judy Book Club author and Number One Bestseller! When her children are offered a scholarship to a prestigious school Lucy Murphy is ecstatic. Her plan for a glittering future ended when she became pregnant. But there will be no limit to what her twins can achieve. Stuck in her dreams for their imaginary lives, Lucy doesn't see what is right in front of her - that she is thinking of her own ambitions, not her children's. And that life can be challenging for seventeen-year-olds, especially in the era of social media. Until catastrophe strikes, Lucy remains blind to the cost of forcing her wishes on the twins, particularly her sensitive daughter. To have any hope of surviving as a family, all three will have to face up to some surprising and difficult truths . . . 'Both heart-breaking and heart-warming ... a joy to read' Woman's Way Praise for Sinéad Moriarty's novels 'A fascinating exploration of difficult subjects ... Moriarty writes with compelling authority' Irish Times 'There is warmth and heart aplenty in this delicately told story' Daily Mail 'OMG! I'm an emotional wreck after reading this novel, probably not helped by the fact that I pulled an all-nighter to finish it ... I just could not put it down' Eileen Dunne, RTÉ 'Heartfelt and deeply moving ... I couldn't put it down.' Susan Lewis 'We ate this fabulous story up - 4 stars' Heat magazine 'Beautifully written and sensitive' Woman's Way 'Intriguing and thought provoking ... a great read.' Katie Fforde 'Gripping and thought-provoking - I was desperate to discover how it would pan out!' Paige Toon
