The startling new novel from Fiona Neill
The Betrayals

After seven years of silence a letter arrives for Rosie Rankin from the woman she once counted as her closest friend. Lisa is writing to reveal she has been diagnosed with cancer and wants to see Rosie one last time to share a secret she doesn’t want to carry to her grave.

Told through the eyes of four members of the same family, The Betrayals takes an unflinching look at contemporary family life.

When Rosie’s best friend has an affair with her husband the repercussions reverberate through the years. The arrival of a letter from the woman who betrayed her threatens to open up all the old wounds. Her daughter, Daisy’s, fragile hold on reality begins to unravel and her teenage son, Max, blames himself for everything that happened. Her brittle ex-husband, Nick, has his own version of events.

As long repressed memories bubble to the surface, the past has never seemed more present and the truth more murky.

Sometimes there are four sides to every story

The moving story of a family destroyed by a secret that has travelled down through the years, The Betrayals, explores the nature of memory and desire and asks whether some things can ever be forgiven.
