Summary
Karen Bloom has always wanted the best things in life. And that includes her children; quite simply, she expects them to be perfect. Her son, Ewan, has been something of a disappointment and she won't be making the same mistake again with her beloved daughter, Bronte. Bronte's every waking hour will be spent at music lessons and dance classes, doing whatever it takes to excel. But as Karen pushes Bronte to the brink, the rest of the family crumbles. Karen's husband, Noel, is losing himself in work, and his teenage daughter from his first marriage, Verity, is becoming ever more volatile. The family is near breaking point. Karen is about to learn just how deadly the pursuit of success can be..
Summary
An ambitious wife and mother who expects her family to achieve high goals no matter the cost is forced to confront her impossible standards as her husband and children rebel, exposing deep cracks in the family's foundation
