Synopsis

Garry Hartshorn and Softie Monaghan were never love's young dream. Not even on their wedding day.Softie was sophisticated, a career woman, who owned a nice apartment overlooking St Kilda Beach. Garry had a few rough edges, plus one failed marriage and an assortment of jobs under his belt. But Softie's body clock was ticking, and Garry wanted children ...So they got married, and produced the only thing they ever had in common. Matilda.Now, two years later, their golden-haired child is at the centre of a bitter divorce and custody battle. Both parents insist that her well-being is the only thing they care about. Yet, in truth, Matilda was always the one most likely to become lost. "A gripping and emotional tale of love and marriage."  Australian Women's Weekly"Fans of Jodi Picoult are better off with Overington … potent, dramatically assured and thought-provoking fiction."  Saturday Age"Overington has a real gift … both in storytelling and in dialogue."  Sydney Morning Herald"Beautifully written and highly emotional."  Take 5
