Frazer, head midwife at a hospital in Perth, Australia, is trying to make her corner of the world a little better by starting up a programme for at-risk parents. Not everyone is excited about her ideas. Surrounded by red tape, she finally has to team up with Cora, a social worker who is married to Frazer’s boss.
Cora is starting to think her marriage is beyond saving, even if she wants to. Feeling smothered by a domineering spouse, she grabs hold of the programme and the distraction Frazer offers with both hands. Soon the two women get a little too close and find themselves in a situation they never dreamed themselves capable of: an affair.
As the two fall deeper, both are torn between their taboo romance and their morals. But walking away from each other may not be as simple as they thought.
Frazer is the head of the midwifery department in a hospital. She is desperate to start a new program that will help hard to reach and teen parents. Cora is the head of social work in the same hospital. She is married to Alec the finance “god”, in his own mind anyway. Cora’s budget has been increased so Frazer decides to see if they can work together on her project, even though she doesn’t much care for Cora. As they work together Frazer gets to know the real Cora and realizes not all is as it seems….
I really enjoyed both of these characters. Frazer is happy and full of hope. Cora is floundering in her marriage. She is full of doubts and regret but excited about the new project and her friendship with Frazer. Together they go through good times and bad then good. I loved the conflict Cora has with Alec and how she handles it in the end. The story line featuring Jack was also very well done. It deals with a whole lot of things most people would never think of. It was a life lesson that really made me think. This book is full of emotions and drama and is a very good read.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
