The Making of Christina


Young interior designer, Christina Clemente, finds herself caught up in an intense affair with her charismatic client Jackson Plummer. Jackson quickly becomes the cure to Christina’s loneliness and a surrogate father to her young daughter Bianca.


As her once effervescent child transforms into a quiet sullen teenager, Christina increasingly struggles to connect with her.


Because Bianca has a secret. And the monstrous truth threatens to destroy them both.


"With her eye for satire, Jaffé does for neighbourly disputes what Liane Moriarty did for schoolyard scandals in Big Little Lies. The Fence is guaranteed to resonate."

Meredith Jaffe author

The Fence


"Reminiscent of the fiction of Liane Moriarty, Meredith Jaffé’s debut explores a range of topics beyond mere border patrol disputes. Written with astute characterisation and alternating viewpoints so the reader can sympathise with both sides, The Fence also explores gender roles at home and work marital and parental friction."
