Doctor Tristan Ainsworth has returned with his family to the idyllic Cornish village close to where he grew up. The past has taught him some hard lessons, but he'll do anything to make his wife happy—so what's making her so withdrawn?
Karen Ainsworth daren't reveal her true feelings, but knows her husband has put up with her moods for too long. A chance to use her extraordinary singing voice may set her free, so why shouldn't she take it? Surely her past can't hurt her now?
As a tide of blackmail and betrayal is unleashed to threaten the foundations of their marriage, Karen and Tristan face a difficult question. Is their love strong enough to face the truth when the truth might cost them everything?
At first I did not know whether it was Tristan or Karen who had the secret (silly me ;) Because yes Karen was agoraphobic but there were things Tristan said. Anyway you will find out. I was only a bit, that is the secret? at first. That can't be the secret, and was it really the secret? Well you will find out ;) but trust me it was worth it.
Karen loves to sing, well she used to. Now she does not want to meet people or go outside. Tristan loves the village and the life, but he also wants his wife back to how she used to be. And it causes tension in their marriage.
And then there was the secret, a big one. There is blackmail, suspense, tension and romance too. The couple is already married but there can still be romance as they find each other again. Even if they are already in love and happy.
As I read on I understood Karen better, I always liked Tristan too as he was happy and was always trying. A good man.
A book about moving on (and letting go of the past.)
I like it
