It's a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family.Emotional displays - unacceptable.Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome.Fun - no thanks.This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham's kingdom. A beautifully displayed impeccably edited fortress of restraint.So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn't read the rule book.For the Wilder-Bingham family, whose lives begin to unravel thread by thread, the consequences are explosive. Because after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying... yes?
