Summary
Pursuing a new life in lush Bali after a shattering heartbreak, Englishwoman Connie is forced to return home by the imminent death of the sister who stole the heart of the man Connie loved, a situation that forces both sisters to confront their beliefs about betrayal and forgiveness
Summary
Constance has made a new life for herself in a foreign land. She is a musician, a composer, a highly paid arranger of other people's music, living in a lively expatriate community in Bali. There the world is idyllic - beautiful beaches framed with lush, green trees, charming small houses, and a relaxed, convivial lifestyle. So when the news comes of her sister's serious illness the last thing she wants to do is return to London, for her sister is much older than Constance - and not a real relative; Constance was adopted. While she never felt completely at home with her 'family', nor did she ever want to find her birth mother. But none of these are the real reason she is so reluctant to go home. It is far more complicated than that: before leaving London, she fell in love with her sister's husband. But Constance does go back to London. She discovers a great deal more about her sister and family, gets to know her 18-year old nephew and his Lithuanian girlfriend, learns about her family history and the hidden connections with her past. Most importantly of all, she must face the dilemma of her forbidden love; and in doing so, discover a new identity for herself.
