Emma, hale and hearty though she is, feels that her time is rapidly running out and she begins to reminisce upon the events of her life far, far less than ordinary. Love In The Afternoon encompasses her peculiar, yet highly significant affair, the marriage that is to end in tragedy, the birth of her twin sons and a loss and reconciliation that her wildest dreams could never have imagined. There is a late flowering of romance and passion, imbued with all the heady and intoxicating fragrance of an Indian summer and the late discovery of a rather lucrative skill. Will Emma perish alone and unfulfilled in a nursing home or does another, spicier, more gratifying fate await her? Always surprising and never predictable, Barrie Stacey's debut novel is as moving as it is entertaining and as entertaining as it is original.
