Readers of Elizabeth Noble, Erica James and Amanda Prowse will devour this gripping novel about love and marriage - and the ties that bind us - from multi-million copy bestselling author Joanna Trollope. With the flawless depiction of rural, middle-class life and her incredibly astute characterisation, she effortlessly demonstrates how seductive and cosy the apparent safety of money, conformity and marriage can be - but also how fragile....

****************************************************************
WOULD YOU TAKE A CHANCE AND SET SOMETHING IN MOTION THAT COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING?

The Grey House is the final piece in the jigsaw of Alice Jordan's perfect life. It seems to be the ultimate achievement of her outwardly happy marriage - a loyal, if dull husband, three children, two cars and now the house. So why does she feel as if something is missing?

As Alice and her family settle themselves into village life, the something missing becomes something huge and then breaks, scandalizing the village and opening up old wounds.

But because of it, Alice begins to feel that there is hope and humour and understanding and compassion in the new life she must build for herself.
