About the Book:
- Fay Weldon
An elite surgeon with a brilliant but philandering husband, Flora Macintyre has always defined herself by her success in juggling her career and her marriage. Until, all at once, she finds herself with neither.
Retired and widowed in the space of a few months, Flora is left untethered. In a moment of madness, she realizes there's nothing to stop her running away to France.
But back home her two daughters - the family she's always loved, but never had the time to nurture - are struggling. Lou is balancing pregnancy with a crumbling relationship, while her younger sister, Kitty, begins to realize she may have to choose between love and her growing passion for music.
And even as the family try to pull together, one dark secret could still tear them all apart...
