Would I Lie to You? (Paperback)Aliya Ali-Afzal (author)
Tackling themes of class, race and social expectation with a wicked wit and warm heart, Would I Lie to You? finds a wife and mother prepared to do almost anything to preserve the lifestyle she has painstakingly built up.
She could lose the perfect life... if she tells the truth.
At the school gates in Wimbledon Village, Faiza fits in. It took a few years and a brand new wardrobe, but now the snobbish mothers who mistook her for the nanny treat her as one of their own.
But the perfect life costs money. When her husband Tom loses his job, Faiza realises she'll have to reveal her biggest secret: she's spent her family's entire life savings.
Unless she doesn't...
It only takes a second to lie to Tom. Now Faiza has six weeks to find £75,000 or risk losing the family she has worked so hard to protect.
