A rather staid middle-aged MP is married to a lively woman who works for a radio station. Meanwhile, in Poland, a young girl begins a backpacking trip across Europe. The book takes a while to get going as each character is introduced, and it's not as thought-provoking or deep as many of Libby Purves' novels. But it's well-written and enjoyable, and very readable.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Henry is a radio DJ: young, hip and single, but fretting about his little son. Philip is an ex-MP ruined by scandal and disowned by his party; Diana, his long-suffering wife, is struggling to find a life of her own. Marianne is three stone overweight after glumly replacing her husband with chocolate eclairs and gin. Lizzie is battling with illness and trying not to think about it." "Into their lives, by accident, comes Eva: a naive and happy Polish backpacker working her way round Europe, with a smile for everyone and her mother's recipe-book. As the values of their comfortable world clash with those of emerging Eastern Europe, the five English characters find comedy, tragedy and romance unfolding with bewildering speed."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
