    Kate Moore is a working mother, struggling to make ends meet, to raise children, to keep a spark in her marriage... and to maintain an increasingly unbearable life-defining secret. So when her husband is offered a lucrative job in Luxembourg, she jumps at the chance to leave behind her double-life, to start anew. She begins to reinvent herself as an expat, finding her way in a language she doesn’t speak, doing the housewifely things she’s never before done - playdates and coffee mornings, daily cooking and never-ending laundry....

    Story

    The summary of the book sold this story as a spy thriller wrapped up in the context of the difficulty of family life. The story never moves beyond the main character's constant inner dialogue of how she feels about her actions and the situations around them. I find myself annoyed with at least 4 chapters of contemplation between each forward movement in the plot. My 10 hour drive was made exponentially more tedious by this book.
