From the author of Prickly Heat comes a novel about friendship and sexual rivalry, career and parenthood, and the ultimate triumph of family bonds.
For the first time in their lives, sisters Hannah and Juliet Goodwin find themselves estranged. Hannah, newly married to City solicitor Michael and pregnant with their first child, has her ambitions focused on a dream house in Battersea’s affluent “Nappy Valley.” All, apparently, is as good as it gets. Juliet, meanwhile, is not so ready to commit. Her once-promising career in brand consultancy is now a low priority to the nights out with her friends Larry, Kate and Fulton, and she is unwilling to consider a future with her boyfriend Guy, a home of her own, or any plan beyond that evening’s choice of drinking hole.
But as Hannah falls under new influences and struggles to recognize the man she married, Juliet finally addresses the past issues that will allow her to take back her life. The sisters’ fortunes cross, coincide and cross again, leading each towards her own undreamed of conclusion.
