HE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER & RADIO 2 SUMMER BOOK CLUB PICK, A GRIPPING FAMILY DRAMA SET IN SUBURBAN NEW YORK
'I absolutely adored it' Liane Moriarty, bestselling author of Big Little Lies
Gillam, upstate New York.
A town of ordinary, big-lawned suburban houses. The Gleesons have recently moved there and soon welcome the Stanhopes as their new neighbours. Lonely Lena Gleeson wants a friend but Anne Stanhope - cold, elegant, unstable - wants to be left alone.
It's left to their children - Lena's youngest, Kate, and Anne's only child, Peter - to find their way to one another. To form a friendship whose resilience and love will be almost broken by the fault line dividing both families, and by the terrible tragedy that will engulf them all.
A tragedy whose true origins only become clear many years later . . .
A story of love and redemption, faith and forgiveness, Ask Again, Yes reveals the way childhood memories change when viewed from the distance of adulthood - villains lose their menace, and those who appeared innocent seem less so.
A story of how, if we're lucky, the violence lurking beneath can be vanquished by the power of love.
