WHAT HAPPENS AFTER HAPPILY EVER AFTER?

'I can't stop thinking about it' Elizabeth Day

'A total triumph' Nina Stibbe
'Beautiful, moving and so funny and well-observed' Philippa Perry

When Juliet moves into her late mother's house, making friends with the neighbouring families is the last thing on her mind. Grief and guilt are weighing her down, and working motherhood is a juggle. But for her husband Liam, the morning coffees and after-school gatherings soon reveal the secret struggles, fears and rivalries playing out behind closed doors - all of which are perfect inspiration for his new novel . . .

When the rupture of a marriage sends ripples through the group, painful home truths are brought to light. And then, one sun-drenched afternoon, life overturns in an instant and nothing on Magnolia Road will ever be the same again.
