'A gloriously heart-warming book you totally lose yourself in' CATHY KELLY
Angela Gillespie's annual Christmas letter has always been full of her family's triumphs.
But this year she surprises everyone, including herself - because she tells the truth . . .
Angela's husband is in the throes of a mid-life crisis. Her daughters are more out of control than ever. And her youngest child spends all of his time talking to an imaginary friend.
And as the repercussions of her ruthlessly honest letter begin to pile up, a shocking event takes Angela from her family, and she realises that perhaps she should have been more careful of what she wished for . . .
