Our secrets and lies

by Sinéad Moriarty | 01 March 2018
Synopsis
Can a mother be true to her children if she cannot be true to herself? Having her son and daughter at 21 forced Lucy Murphy to walk away from a glittering future. They are the loves of her life and she is determined that they will have wonderful lives. So a scholarship to a prestigious school seems like a golden opportunity for the twins, the fulfilment of every wish Lucy has for them. But Lucy is confusing her thwarted ambitions with what her children really want. After all, seventeen-year-olds have dreams of their own, dreams they cannot always share with their mother. Until catastrophe strikes, Lucy is blind to the cost of forcing her own 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 ... Our Secrets and Lies is a moving, gripping and thought-provoking story about a mother learning the hardest lesson of all - how to let go of her children and how to live without them. Praise for Sinéad Moriarty 'A heart-warming and a heart-breaking story, beautifully written and sensitive' Woman's Way '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 '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
