On a normal day, in a normal house, on a normal street, wife and mother Fran has had enough. She packs a case, leaves a note for her bullying husband Pete, and one for her beloved twenty-year-old son Harry, and heads to the airport – and freedom.
In another house, on another street, Helena is desperately baiting her husband Jack into a fight. These days it feels like the only way to get Jack to take notice of her. Passionate, volatile, increasingly fragile, Helena is fast running out of hope.
What Helena and Fran don’t know, is that soon their lives are going to collide in ways neither expect nor understand. And if Fran and Helena are going to change their own futures, then first they will have to change each other’s.
Amanda Brookfield is back with a triumphant, crackling story about love, marriage, lies and fate, and how our destinies can be changed by the smallest decisions. Perfect for fans of Sheila O’Flanagan, Jane Fallon and Jane Green.
Interesting and engaging read which I have enjoyed. This has been an easy read but also one that I’ve read quite quickly.
I feel as though this has been quite similar to another book I’ve read. I felt I was able to predict where the author was going to take the story.
I have liked Brookfield’s writing style, I have found that it flows, it’s easy to read and sets a clear picture.
I do like the cover of this one, it’s elegant and attracts your attention. For me this has been a three star read.
