Karen Bloom expects perfection. Her son, Ewan, has been something of a disappointment and she won't be making the same mistake again with her beloved, talented child, Brontë. Brontë's every waking hour will be spent at music lessons and dance classes, doing extra schoolwork and whatever it takes to excel. But as Karen pushes Brontë to the brink, the rest of the family crumbles. Karen's husband, Noel, is losing himself in work, and his teenage daughter from his first marriage, Verity, is becoming ever more volatile. The family is dangerously near breaking point.

This was a suspense-filled book that I completed in 1-1/2 days. Twists when totally unexpected. I will definitely read another book by Daly - enjoyed it immensely.

Terrible book - terrible writing. The characters are two dimensional and not at all likeable or believable. Implausible storyline, a complete waste of time.
