Three women, three secrets and three lives changed forever ...Amy has never had to work, enjoying a charmed life of shopping and lunching, with a nanny to look after the children, courtesy of her wealthy husband, Ben. Her older sister, Kate, however, has always had to struggle by on very little money, juggling her job with two children and a husband. And Jennifer, their mother, is only just beginning to recover from the death of her own husband. But when Jennifer makes contact with the charming, womanizing Hugh, with whom she had an affair many years previously, she unlocks a dangerous Pandora's box. She wants to find the answer to a question that has tormented her for thirty-six years. And Amy's charmed existence is about to be thrown into disarray when Ben's business collapses, and their wealth disappears overnight. Suddenly she finds herself forced to be the breadwinner.
