Publisher's Summary

A dying wish. A devastating secret. Should the truth really stay buried?

The four Bliss siblings have a loving but complicated bond, but when their mother, Dorothy, dies seemingly without a will, this relationship is put to the test. As the mourning siblings try to make sense of the situation, one of them is caught with a secret: before she died, Dorothy entrusted her favourite daughter with her will and a letter - and told her to destroy them both.

Of course it was Anna their mother turned to for this mission. Miriam, the eldest, is far too sensible; Sebastian, the baby, too sensitive; and Clare, the middle child, has always been too rebellious to rely on, and long ago cut herself out of her siblings’ lives.

But what Anna finds in the documents could change everything. Do the other siblings not deserve to know what it is about them that their mother was so desperate to hide? And if it is revealed, will the Bliss family ever be the same again?

The Thing About Clare

The audio was very well done on this year of an English family through the lives of their four children. It was well.written and the characters were very believable. I will read this author again.

Family Ties

Four sibs growing up in England. When mother dies there's a big secret revealed. The book reveals how finding out of the secret shakes things up. It's a good read, though I enjoyed 's Clark's other novel, Postcards from a Stranger more.

I really like this author!

What a great story of siblings and a wonderful mother and not too bad father and the poor 2nd daughter, it’s always the 2nd child. The forgotten one. It’s sad.
Great ending for her.

Tedious

I was desperate for it to end but it just dragged on and on. Characters interaction with each other was unbelievable.
