Overview

Newly-widowed Harriet Capel does not expect the remainder of her life to hold many surprises; she imagines it will involve little more than fretting over her children's difficulties with their various marriages and relationships, and looking after her grandchildren. But everything changes when she encounters Oliver Gaunt, her daughter-in-law's father. The physical attraction between them is powerful and instantaneous, but as their love affair gathers intensity and pace, so do its consequences for the family as a whole. In this enthralling story, two generations negotiate a dangerous tightrope between fidelity and parenthood, each guarding past and present secrets which hold the power to destroy the carefully-erected boundaries of tradition and propriety.

Editorial Reviews

The Bookbag
I was impressed by the characters: putting aside Harriet and Oliver's immediate infatuation, I liked them both as characters. Harriet's thoughtful and considerate and something of a restraining influence on Oliver, who can be a little headstrong. Jennifer and Roderick are very much of the brash nineties, but the person who stole my heart was little Hugo - I just wanted to give him a good listening to! And - there's a twist at the end which I don't think you'll see coming. I certainly didn't.
