The Children's Secret (Paperback)Nina Monroe (author)
- Coming soon
Eva Day is enjoying the last few days of summer.
It's hard to believe only a few months ago she moved to this sleepy New Hampshire town from England with her husband and daughter. The Days are settling into their new community well, although Eva's daughter Lily has been withdrawn; she's missing home.
But Eva has the perfect distraction for her: the Wrights - another family in town - are throwing a back-to-school party for their son, a great opportunity for Lily to start making new friends. The problem is it's well-known that the Wrights have guns on their farm, and other parents in the town are reluctant to play at the house.
In an attempt to bring families together, Eva convinces all the other mothers in her circle - bar one - to attend the party. It's a beautiful day, and adults and children alike having a wonderful time. Until the happy atmosphere is shattered by a gunshot ringing out from the barn where the children are playing.
What follows is a tense and claustrophobic story about a tight-knit community fracturing, and the eventual healing process after the children's secret is revealed.
