Author Joan Fallonabout this book: Have you ever had a secret that you cannot tell anyone - even your closest friend? Susan's childhood was full of secrets - 'Don't tell anyone,' was her mother's favourite phrase. So when she discovers that her father had had an illegitimate child, called Michael, she instinctively knows she can't tell anyone.

But Susan isn't a child anymore - she is a middle-aged woman who is keeping secrets from her husband in her search to find her half-brother. The need to know more about Michael becomes an obsession and she soon becomes enmeshed in a web of lies and deceit as she tries to track him down.

When she and Michael finally meet, Susan is faced with a dilemma - she can walk away and forget about him or she can tell her family and face the consequences.

This is a family drama that looks at prejudice - age, gender and disability prejudices - and how one woman comes to terms with it.

It is a story which will appeal to women readers, especially older readers, who will recognise the situation that Susan finds herself in.
