Library Journal Review

Veitch's sophomore effort (after the acclaimed Without a Backward Glance) introduces college art instructor Susanna Greenfield, a model wife, devoted mother, dedicated daughter, and loyal sister, attempting to jump-start the creative side of her career. Despite living a comfortable "perfect" family life in Melbourne, Australia, Susanna is feeling stymied over the focus of her upcoming exhibit and searching for something more when her life is torn apart by a family tragedy. Susanna soon becomes aware of her husband's secret life, causing her to question whether her entire life is based on a foundation of lies. While her children, Sebastian and Stella-Jean, remain constants, it is her architect husband, the cocky, crass Gerry, who makes waves. Verdict Despite the occasional soap-opera feel (well-developed, good-hearted, and intriguing protagonists contrast sharply with one-dimensional loathsome and villainous characters), this is absorbing domestic fiction that delves into sexism, fulfillment, love, and trust. A real page-turner that will appeal to fans of women's fiction.-Andrea Tarr, Corona P.L., CA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
