What Matters Most

There is good love and bad love. Good sex and bad sex. And paediatrician Mia Sandhurst is discovering the difference.

Scraping to keep her marriage together after her husband of 25 years breaks her heart Mia finally faces reality. Embarking on a series of outlandish new behaviours she makes startling fresh discoveries about herself, love and life.

But the lies and betrayal Mia endured at the hands of her husband are nothing compared to those being faced by her 15 year old patient, Rachel Hooper.

Set on the magical coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, What Matters Most is a story of love, family, misplaced loyalty and how our choices shape who we are.
