Nell Stockdale is in a pretty good place. At 36, she's managing to combine a full-on media career with single motherhood. She's got a lovely London flat, great girlfriends, and has begun an affair with a sexy younger man. But there is bad news: her mother is very ill. Will she return to the family's large, damp Cornish farmhouse for the summer to care for her? It's a dilemma. Normally Nell keeps her family at arm's length. Her sister is engaged to Nell's ex big love. There's the aspirational sister-in-law, the flaky brother, and the inescapable fact that she has never got on with either Cornwall or her eccentric, distant mother. The past is another county. But something powerful is pulling her back.Meanwhile, in Banbury, April James has finally found the courage to leave safe married domesticity and head south on a mission too, convinced that the Stockdales once played a part in her life. One handsome man will enchant both Nell and April. And as the women's paths cross, dark family secrets, hidden for a generation, change all their lives forever...… (more)
