Something to Hide

Deborah Moggach (Author)


"Classic Moggach: readable, memorable . . . an unashamedly colorful journey across continents, with clothes, food, landscapes brought joyously to life." --The Times (London)

"Nobody in the world knows our secret . . . that I've ruined Bev's life, and she's ruined mine."

Petra's romantic life has always been a car crash, and even in her sixties she's still getting it disastrously wrong. And then she falls in love with Jeremy, an old friend visiting from abroad. There's just one catch: Jeremy is married to her best friend, Bev.

Meanwhile, on opposite sides of the world, two other women are also struggling with the weight of betrayal: Lorrie, a Texan, is about to embark on the biggest deception of her life, and in China, Li Jing is trying to understand exactly what it is her husband does on his business trips.

It turns out that no matter where you are in the world or how well you think you know the one you love, everyone has secrets.
