What if your perfect life was based on lies?
I'm a lucky woman, thinks Susanna Greenfield. And why wouldn't she? Her handsome, successful husband is a loving father to their two teenage children. Her mother, Jean, is her dearest friend. Her scatty but adored younger sister, Angie, seems to have finally found some stability in her life. Susanna has a solid career as an art teacher and if, as she's recently discovered, there's a hole inside her where her creative spirit used to be - is that really such a big price to pay?
But beneath the carefully maintained surface, seismic forces are at work. Fault lines are forming, not only within Susanna, but in each beloved member of her family. In a single, tragically Ill-judged moment, the fabric it has taken a lifetime to construct can be torn apart.

"A journey of self-discovery and reinvention is at the heart of this novel.... What's really refreshing about Trust is that it's an interior journey, and far more satisfying than Susanna trying on a new wardrobe or a sexy new persona." (The Age)
"Verdict: immensely enjoyable. I was hooked by this Melbourne story of a flawed middle-class family.... Kate Veitch's confident exploration of a mature woman losing her innocence and gaining control of her life is revelatory." (The Herald Sun)
"Trust is a harrowing novel of what lies beneath the surface of a seemingly idyllic life. Susanna Greenfield feels blessed by fortune; she has a successful career as an art teacher, prosperous husband, two teenaged children, a strong relationship with her mother, and things seemed to have turned a corner with her younger sister. Susanna's creative spirit seems to be dwindling as of late, but that seems a small price to pay for her happiness...until the fractures underneath the lies supporting her life begin to manifest. Vividly written with complex, believable characters who struggle with problems that are are too real, Trust is highly recommended for both personal and public library audiobook collections." (Midwest Book Review)
