Summary
The compelling and heart-breaking new novel from the Sunday Times Top Ten bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors. Jenna and Jack Moore have moved their family to Wales for a fresh start. For vivacious, happy-go-lucky fifteen-year-old Paige the future is full of promise. But suddenly everything changes. Paige becomes more and more withdrawn. The closeness she once shared with her mother a distant memory. It then becomes clear that Jack has secrets too. Preoccupied with her younger children, her husband's fidelity and their fledgling publishing company, Jenna doesn't realise the extent of her eldest daughter's unhappiness until the unthinkable happens. And the nightmare is only just beginning
Summary
"Everything seems perfect for Jenna Moore: her loving husband adores their new Welsh home, their new business is on the verge of taking off, and her children are thriving in their new schools. But her fragile new life is threatened when her husband begins keeping secrets and lying to cover them up. Their business is in trouble, and her fifteen-year-old daughter is growing increasingly distant and isolated. Is it normal teenage angst, or is there something more going on? As Jenna struggles to hold her family together, the careful life she has constructed begins to fall apart. A deeply personal and moving story, Too Close to Home offers an intimate portrait of a family in crisis."--Publisher's description
