Summary

An entertaining, warm and quirky novel of families, secrets and the truth of love.

Judith shares her life with her partner, Joanna, on the lonely wilds of Bodmin Moor, far from the memories and trauma of her childhood. But when Judith's sister, Deborah, is tragically widowed, the women agree to meet. And what is intended to be a harmonious reunion turns into an entanglement of resentment, jealousy and desire as aspects of the past force themselves into an uneasy present, with some surprising results.

Critic reviews

"A powerful and moving novel." (Independent on Sunday)

"Engrossing...Gale is a charmingly idiosyncratic writer who could not write a cliché if he tried." (Daily Telegraph)
