Kate, grieving the loss of her son, habitually visits open houses in Sydney’s North Shore to imagine the happy families living there. She finds a house that she thinks is perfect and obsessively stalks the family. When she discovers that the family is not perfect, she feels compelled to save them.
Glanceabook: “I enjoyed reading this book, the plot being interesting enough to keep me turning the pages. The writing invoked suspense and tension but I felt that the characters were somewhat stereotypical.”
- Books and Publishing: “At times sad and moving, the plot, which also deals with issues of domestic violence, miscarriage and dysfunctional relationships, takes a while to pick up the pace, but when it does, the twists come fast.”
- Queensland Reviewers Collective: “Kelli Hawkins has written a psychological drama of some power. It is well worth reading.”
“My pulse quickened as I walked through the front door.”
“Sometimes the houses told me a lot; other times there wasn’t much of their personality left. But I always took a memento. Some were good; some bad.”.
