Family life for Mia Channing has always been a balancing act. Her husband sees himself as the Larger than Life Patriarch and has always assigned their grown up children very specific roles. Jensen is the Unlovable Awkward One; Eliza, the Distant Smart One; and Daisy, the baby of the family, is the Special One. Mia's own role is that of Devoted Wife and Mediator. When Jensen makes a rare visit home to celebrate his thirtieth birthday, he brings with him his latest girlfriend and her daughter in tow - and his sister Daisy seizes the opportunity to drop a bombshell. It's an evening that marks a turning point in all their lives...Meanwhile yet more change is in the air with the arrival in the village of wealthy, divorced Owen Fletcher. His return to live in The Hidden Cottage, a place that holds special memories for him, forces Mia to confront the role she's played all these years and to take the risk, finally, of being true to herself.

A story of family ties, love and loss * GOOD BOOK GUIDE * Like Maeve Binchy, the characters are identifiable, yet somehow never predictable and always with an element of sympathy ... This novel, telling the story of a perfect family and its imperfect realities, is splendid and just right for an end-of-summer read. * PARENT TALK * I raced to the end of this. * DAILY MAIL * The Hidden Cottage is a heart-warming, romantic story full of engaging characters, an emotional rollercoaster. * DAILY EXPRESS *
