Elle luttait pour découvrir la vérité… Si seulement elle avait pu ne jamais l’apprendre !
Un matin, Catherine se réveille seule dans son lit. Elle ne s’inquiète pas, convaincue que son mari est allé courir avant de se rendre au travail, comme il en a l’habitude.
Mais cette fois, Simon n’arrivera jamais au bureau. Ses baskets sont devant la porte et rien ne manque à part lui. Très vite, Catherine pressent qu’il lui est arrivé quelque chose : il n’avait aucune raison de disparaître ainsi.
En réalité, tandis que la vie de sa femme est bouleversée, Simon, bien vivant, parcourt le monde et se forge un nouveau destin. Il est le seul à savoir ce qu’il a fait, ce qui l’a poussé à partir. Les souvenirs auxquels Catherine se raccroche ne sont que mensonges, tout comme leur mariage. Ce n’est que vingt-cinq ans plus tard, quand Simon refait surface, qu’elle découvre enfin qui il est réellement…. Et il est des vérités plus difficiles à entendre que d’autres.

Nina can never forgive Maggie for what she did. And she can never let her leave.
They say every house has its secrets, and the house that Maggie and Nina have shared for so long is no different. Except that these secrets are not buried in the past.
Every other night, Maggie and Nina have dinner together. When they are finished, Nina helps Maggie back to her room in the attic, and into the heavy chain that keeps her there. Because Maggie has done things to Nina that can’t ever be forgiven, and now she is paying the price.
But there are many things about the past that Nina doesn’t know, and Maggie is going to keep it that way—even if it kills her.
Because in this house, the truth is more dangerous than lies.
