Every Secret Thing, by Rachel Crowther, is a story about friendship, betrayal and broken hearts. The summary says: "1995. Five friends, newly graduated, travel together to the Lake District, at the very beginning of the rest of their lives. Young, ambitious and full of life, they little imagine the events that will overtake them that fateful summer, tearing their fragile group apart.
Twenty years later, summoned by an eccentric bequest, they return to the same spot - knowing little of one another beyond their youthful memories and what can be gleaned from Google. It's not long before old friendships - and old romances - are re-kindled. But not long either before old rivalries re-emerge and old wounds are painfully re-opened. How long does it take for past sins to be forgiven? And can the love they crushed be regained?" Every Secret Thing is out in June 2017.
