Synopsis

It happens sometimes that you accidentally star in a little public performance, your very own comedy, tragedy or melodrama.The three Kettle sisters have been accidentally starring in public performances all their lives, affecting their audiences in more ways than they'll ever know. This time, however, they give a particularly spectacular show when a raucous, champagne-soaked birthday dinner ends in a violent argument and an emergency dash to the hospital.So who started it this time? Was it Cat: full of angry, hurt passion dating back to the 'Night of the Spaghetti'? Was it Lyn: serenely successful, at least on the outside? Or was it Gemma: quirky, dreamy and unable to keep a secret, except for the most important one of all? Whoever the culprit, their lives will have all changed dramatically before the next inevitable clash of shared genes and shared childhoods.'A compelling story. Once you've started this, you won't want to put it down until you have all the answers.' CLEO“Funny, wry, touching…the drama is raw and real. Each of the beautifully drawn characters is so vividly alive…” AUSTRALIAN WOMEN’S WEEKLY (Book of the Month)“In this non-stop narrative, siblings rival each other, break up and make up. Moriarty is good at social observation, mixing high drama with low comedy and moments of genuine poignancy” THE SUNDAY AGE
