Waterstones Says

The author of Something to Tell You delivers a heartwrenching and relatable story of coping with loss and the price of secrecy, as a man struggles to fulfil his promise to look after his dead brother’s family in light of fresh revelations.

When faced with the sudden death of his brother, Dan's mission is clear. He puts together a project to help pick up the pieces and support his grieving sister-in-law Zoe, plus her young children. This is Dan's promise - to ensure his family's happiness, and to try and live up to the man his brother was.

But tying up loose ends brings a shocking secret to light, and calls into question everything Dan knew about his older brother. With more than just his promise on the line, Dan is faced with an ultimatum: Should he tell the truth and risk his family's fragile happiness, or will his brother's secrets end up becoming his own?
