Summary
You leave your kids with a friend down the street. Everyone does it. Until the day it goes wrong. Suzy has been the only one to reach out to her neighbor, single mother Callie, and her frail daughter Rae. Suzy welcomed them into her large, apparently happy, family, and has been a rock and best friend to Callie. But it's time for Callie to find her own way, and go back to work. But why does she find it so hard to tell Suzy about her new job? And who will look after Rae while she's gone? Callie's return to work precipitates a chain of events that reveal the isolation, turmoil, and dark secrets behind the doors of a seemingly peaceful neighborhood.--B.I.P
Summary
Single mother Callie has come to rely heavily on her best friend Suzy. But Callie suspects Suzy's life isn't as simple as it seems. It's time she pulled away and going back to work is just the first step towards rediscovering her old confidence. But who will care for her rather frail daughter, Rae, while she is gone? Suzy and Callie live close to each other on a typical cramped, anonymous London street. Neighbours seem to move in, and move on, before you have even learned their names. Callie's increased sense of alienation leads her to try to befriend a new resident on her street, Debs. But Debs is anxious, odd. You wouldn't trust her with your child... especially not if you knew anything about her past.
