In Carmel Harrington's latest novel, The Woman at 72 Derry Lane, there are often secrets behind closed doors. The synopsis says: "On a leafy suburban street in Dublin, beautiful, poised Stella Greene lives with her successful husband, Matt. The perfect couple in every way, Stella appears to have it all.
Next door, at number 72 however, lives Rea Brady. Gruff, bad-tempered and rarely seen besides the twitching of her net curtains, rumour has it she's lost it all ... including her marbles if you believe the neighbourhood gossip.
But appearances can be deceiving and when Stella and Rea's worlds collide they realise they have much in common. Both are trapped in a prison of their own making. Has help been next door without them realising it?" The Woman at 72 Derry Lane is out in June 2017.
