Lydia has made a good life for herself, desperately trying to be and do the ‘right’ kind of things. But Lydia’s been living a lie for years and her husband, Mark, and her children have no idea about who she really is.
Nothing lasts forever, and the past catches up to her when the person who knows all Lydia’s little dark secrets turns up at the school gates, and his presence threatens to blow Lydia’s life apart.
What’s her terrible truth? Once the secret’s out, you can’t put it back...
This is a truly unputdownable book.

The School Gate Survival Guide release
We are excited to announce the publication of Kerry Fisher’s The School Gate Survival Guide in e-book today.
The School Gate Survival Guide will be published in paperback by Avon on 11th September but is available now in e-format.
Feisty Maia is a cleaner for ladies who lunch. She spends her life wiping up spilt Sauvignon Blanc and vacuuming around handbags before rushing back home to run around after her children's hopeless father on an estate where survival depends on your ability to look the other way.
But an unusual inheritance catapults her into a different world where it seems no child can survive without organic apricots and Kumon maths classes and no woman can contemplate a week without pilates and pedicures.
As she dashes from coffee mornings to her mops and buckets, she is drawn to the one man who can help her
family fit in.
But is his interest in her purely professional or will her modern My Fair Lady experiment end in disaster?

Described as ‘a brilliantly astute novel. Memorable and pithy with bags of humour’ Kerry’s début novel, The School Gate Survival Guide, was published in e-book format in July and today the paperback edition hits the shelves.
Kerry said: 'I feel absolutely blessed to have come this far. I've worked hard and persevered, but I've also had some lucky breaks and massive support from so many readers, authors and friends. It's been quite humbling to see how generous-spirited people are. One of my lucky breaks was having Clare Wallace offer to represent me. Along with my editor, Helen Bolton, at Avon, Clare has helped to make the publishing process really enjoyable rather than daunting.'
