A dying wish. A devastating secret. Must the truth truly stay buried?
The four Bliss siblings have a loving but complicated bond, but when their mother, Dorothy, dies seemingly with out 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 used to be 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 at all times been too rebellious to depend on, and long ago cut herself out of her siblings’ lives.
But what Anna finds in the documents could change the whole lot. Do the other siblings not deserve to know what it’s about them that their mother used to be so desperate to hide? And whether it is revealed, will the Bliss circle of relatives ever be the same again?
