‘No one writes about modern family with more truth or authenticity than Fiona Neill’ LISA JEWELL

‘A stunning, almost hypnotic read that pulls you under. Completely engrossing’ Reader Review *****

Everyone is talking about Grace’s family.

But for all the wrong reasons . . .

Grace wanted to give her daughters the childhood she never had. And with teenage golden girl Lilly she’s never had to worry.

But when Lilly mysteriously collapses at school, Grace’s carefully ordered world crashes down. It turns out Lilly isn’t the perfect daughter after all and Grace becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth.

Which is when she takes her eyes off her youngest daughter, Mia and learns that the closer the family, the darker the secrets . . .

Beneath the Surface explores the weight of the past upon the present, the burden of keeping secrets and what happens when children get caught in the undercurrents of adult relationships.
