In Plain Sight, the new novel by Mandy Collins:
Maggie McGowan has what seems to be the perfect life. She has a doting husband, two kids, a lovely home, and the freedom to spend her days doing exactly what she wants.
But that’s the trouble. Maggie isn’t entirely sure what she wants. She just knows that she’s unsettled, restless, drifting without purpose. Her kids are fairly self-sufficient; her house and garden are immaculate, and if she’s honest, she’s bored and feeling like she’s lost herself completely.
Her days are an endless round of taking her ten-year-old son to school and sports practices, and trying to get through to her sixteen-year-old daughter, a brilliant cellist who plays in a youth orchestra when she’s not daydreaming at school or fighting with her mother.
When Maggie reconnects on Facebook with someone from her student days, however, and discovers he has moved into town, a secret she has kept for decades will set in motion a chain of events that will turn her whole life – and that of her family – upside-down.
