Summary
Having dedicated herself to styling her family in accordance with her ideals, a mother of six finds her illusions wavering in the face of her husband's distance, long-repressed secrets, and her children's respective confrontations with painful truths
Summary
All Alison ever wanted was a blissful childhood for her six children, with summers at the beach and birthday parties on the lawn at their family home. Together with Ingrid, the family au pair, she has worked hard to create a real old-fashioned family life. But beneath its postcard sheen, the picture is clouded by a distant father, Alison's inexplicable emotional outbursts, and long-repressed secrets that no one dares mention
