Notes:
Alice and Niall used to be lovers, best friends and parents, in that order. Now they're no longer on the same page or even reading from the same book. Ann thought when she and Ken retired, it would be their second spring. Instead, it feels more like an icy winter. Orla is falling in love with boyfriend Paul, but her complicated past makes her unsure if she can ever be intimate with anyone. Three couples find themselves telling a stranger about the most private part of their lives - their hopes, their disappointments, their awkward realisations. Can they learn to be honest with each other? And what life-changing decisions will be made when they do?

Though times are still tough, she's beginning to see the start of a new life. But when 12-year-old Jesssica is diagnosed with cancer, Kate's resilience is put to the ultimate test. She has an 18-year-old son consumed with hatred of his father, a seven-year-old who is bewildered and acting up and an ex-husband who won't face up to his responsibilities.

Kate knows she must put to one side her own fear and heartbreak and do right by her children, particularly Jessica. But maybe doing the right thing means doing the unthinkable.

Book:Our secrets and lies:2018 Book
Author: Moriarty, Sinead
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Penguin Ireland
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Lucy Murphy has one goal in life - to make sure that her twins get a better start than she did. Having been abandoned by their father early in her pregnancy, and forced to walk away from a glittering future as a lawyer, she has vowed that nothing will block her children's dreams. She never talks about the past - only what lies ahead. So when the twins get an opportunity to move to a prestigious school all Lucy sees is the fulfilment of every wish she's ever had for them. But maybe Lucy is confusing her thwarted ambitions with what her daughter and son really want. After all, like all 17-year-olds they have their own ideas about their lives, ideas they can't share with their mother. Loving them as fiercely as she does, Lucy is blind to the risks of forcing her vision on her children. Until it's almost too late.

Note: Originally published: Dublin: Penguin Ireland, 2015 When Alice's husband Ben dies suddenly, her world falls apart. They shared 20 years and two daughters and life without him is unimaginable. Having lost her parents while young, Alice understands her girls' pain. At 15, Jools is at that awkward age and only Ben could get through to her; 11-year-old Holly looks for the answer to everything in books but this time she's drawing a blank. For their sakes Alice summons up superhuman reserves of strength and, somehow, all three of them come through the dark days. In time, it's even possible for Alice to consider remarrying. So when Ben turns up after three years, her world is again turned upside-down. The girls assume that their family can go back to the way they were. Alice is not so sure. Once more she must find the strength to be the mother her daughters need her to be. But this time what that means is far from clear.
