What’s more, Kathleen has a terrible secret of her own.A novel about what people will do to avoid the truth, and the one boy who is willing to face it, The Quiet Life is a family saga full of twists and turns right up to the last page.PRAISE FOR THE QUIET LIFE:Brilliant Marian Keyes (The Woman Who Stole My Life, Rachels Holiday.)Buy this book!
