From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Take an ordinary, well-off family like the Prices. Watch what happens when one Sunday seventeen-year-old Hannah disappears without a trace. See how the family rallies when a ransom note demands half a million pounds for Hannah's safe return.

But it's when Hannah comes home that the story really begins.

Now observe what happens to a family when they lose their house, their status, all their wealth. Note how they disintegrate under the pressures of guilt and poverty and are forced to confront their true selves. And, finally, wait to hear about Hannah, who has the most shocking surprise in store of all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Deborah Moggach is a delight to read-her characters are wonderfully alive, and their stories grip us unequivocally... the novel is enjoyable from first to last * Daily Telegraph *
It is characterisation at which Moggach excels. Her gift is to perceive and describe our confusions about life... and to write with feeling about the continual quest for love and happiness that is part of the human condition * Sunday Times *
A neat plot... [with] dark flashes of hubris and nemesis * Guardian *
Moggach's subject is the rickety edifice we call the family, which she comes at armed with both a wrecking ball and an insatiable curiosity to note the particular way it collapses * Independent *
She is a terrific plotter * Guardian *
