How can you pack for the journey of a lifetime?
George Baxter has settled for a comfortable life, content as the years unfold predictably - until Win, his wife of twenty-six years, dies.
With his loyal dog Monty by his side, George throws himself into his work as an antiques dealer. His business is at the heart of the village and all sorts pass through the doors, each person in search of their own little piece of history.
When George meets local widow Sylvia Newsome, he imagines a different kind of future. But life has more revelations to offer him. Over the course of an English summer George uncovers some unexpected mysteries from his past, which could shape his tomorrows . . .

George Baxter is one of those rare characters in a novel that you feel you've known all your life. Full of hilarious set pieces and moments of tender reflection, A New Map of Love sneaks up on you, the last page is as lovely as the first. I loved it. -- Kit de Waal, author of Costa-shortlisted My Name is Leon
A New Map of Love is an acute and beguiling study of life, love and the endless flat footed dance of men and women. -- Sarah Dunant
