Synopsis

Kate is smart, successful and adept at making people feel at home: her husband Adam, her children, the guests of the hotel chain she works for. But her own foundations are about to be knocked away – for while Kate has been building a life, Adam's attention has been elsewhere. Who is the woman he’s been emailing? And whose number keeps showing up on his phone? Kate tries to hold things together for her daughters, but what can she say, now Adam won’t be coming home? As Kate searches for answers, she is forced to reassess her family, her future, and the man she thought she knew . . .
