Other People’s Houses Kelli Hawkins

FF HAW – (Frankton)

A debut novel from Australian author Kelli Hawkins. Ten years ago, Kate Webb lost her young son. She’s been seeking refuge in alcohol, searching for something more. Attending open houses on Sydney’s wealthy North Shore, she imagines the lives of the people who live there. Then one afternoon, hungover, she visits the Harding house­­ – the perfect house with, it seems, the ideal family. A photograph captures a kind-looking man, a beautiful woman she once knew from university days, and a boy she initially believes is her son. When her curiosity turns to obsession, she uncovers the cracks that lie beneath a glossy facade of perfection, sordid truths she could never have imagined. But is it her imagination? As events start to spiral dangerously out of control, could the real threat come from Kate herself?
