Summary

America's next favorite Australian author!

"With jaw-dropping discoveries and realistic consequences, this novel is not to be missed. Perfect for lovers of Big Little Lies ." -- Library Journal, starred review

Small, perfect towns often hold the deepest secrets.

From the outside, Essie's life looks idyllic: a loving husband, a beautiful house in a good neighborhood, and a nearby mother who dotes on her grandchildren. But few of Essie's friends know her secret shame: that in a moment of maternal despair, she once walked away from her newborn, asleep in her carriage in a park. Disaster was avoided and Essie got better, but she still fears what lurks inside her, even as her daughter gets older and she has a second baby.

When a new woman named Isabelle moves in next door to Essie, she is an immediate object of curiosity in the neighborhood. Why single, when everyone else is married with children? Why renting, when everyone else owns? What mysterious job does she have? And why is she so fascinated with Essie? As the two women grow closer and Essie's friends voice their disapproval, it starts to become clear that Isabelle's choice of neighborhood was no accident. And that her presence threatens to bring shocking secrets to light.

The Family Next Door is Sally Hepworth at her very best: at once a deeply moving portrait of family drama and a compelling suburban mystery that will keep you hooked until the very last page.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Pleasant Court is a familiar neighborhood, full of families, watch meetings, chats at the mailbox. It's also full of secrets, and Pleasant Court's newest resident may reveal them all. Ange appears to have the perfect family, so who is the woman who knows her husband so well? Fran and her husband came back together after a rough period when she announced her pregnancy, so why won't she let him near the baby? Essie's closest friends and family know that she once left her newborn behind at a nearby park, but how can they be sure she won't fall apart again now that she has a second child? Enter Isabelle, the woman who doesn't quite fit into the neighborhood, who quickly becomes uncomfortably close to Essie, and who has a secret of her own. Hepworth (The Mother's Promise, 2017) deftly keeps the reader turning pages and looking for clues, all the while building multilayered characters and carefully doling out bits of their motivations. A must for Hepworth's growing fan base, and a good suggestion for readers of fellow Aussies Liane Moriarty and Jane Harper.--Babiasz, Tracy Copyright 2018 Booklist"
