Jane loses her high flying job, husband Edward's father dies and he wants them to go live in the small town where his family are. Then there is Chastity, a rough kid from a rough trailer park who Jane was briefly friends with when she was younger. Now Chastity is looking for her and so is Mick, Jane's thuggish ex. Jane was exasperating - a high flyer at work yet rather a weakling when it comes to home life and then makes an astonishing decision which was completely out of character. The style of writing was a lot of the time like a YA book which jarred a bit, especially at the beginning of the book. I did like the idea of this story and the description of how suffocating it could be in some neighbourhoods where everyone knows everyone else. I would read something else by this author at a future date.
