"A poignant, beautifully heartbreaking novel about what it means to be family, the ties that bind us, and the secrets that threaten to tear us apart. When an unfortunate accident forces Honor back into the lives of her widowed daughter-in-law, Jo, and her only granddaughter, Lydia, she cannot wait to be well enough to get back to her own home. However, the longer she stays with Jo and Lydia, the more they start to feel like a real family. But each of the three women is keeping secrets from the others that threaten to destroy the lives they've come to know. Honor's secret threatens to rob her of the independence she's guarded ferociously for eighty years. Jo's secret could destroy the "normal" family life she's fought so hard to build and maintain. Lydia's secret could bring her love--or the loss of everything that matters most to her. One summer's day, grandmother, mother and daughter's secrets will be forced out in the open in a single dramatic moment that leaves them all asking: is there such a thing as second chances?"-- Provided by publisher.

An interesting book with a lot more depth to it than you might think when you first start reading it. I enjoyed the misunderstandings and different viewpoints of the mother, grandmother and daughter and the walls they'd built individually to protect themselves. How those walls finally begin to be breached is the crux of the story, so I won't give any more details, but this is way more than 'chick lit' which I feared it might be!
