When you've dedicated your life to your children, what happens when they grow up?

Rachel loves being at the centre of her large family. She has devoted herself fiercely to bringing up her three sons, but at their childhood home on the wide, bird-haunted coast of Suffolk, Rachel finds that her control begins to slip away. Other women - her daughters-in-law - are usurping her position. They have become more important to her boys than she is.

A crisis brings these subtle rifts to the surface. Can there be a way forward, if they are to survive as a family?

MEDIA REVIEWS
We love Trollope's novels and await each new one with excitement * HEAT *
Supremely sure of her material and purpose, compassionate but never sentimental * THE SUNDAY TIMES *
Wonderfully observed and readable * THE TIMES *
Infallibly elegant... All this lies beneath the sparkling, well groomed surface of a novel which could quite easily be read as a light diversion for an idle afternoon. But look more closely and something as grim as Greek tragedy is played out around the cosy family dinner table -- Jane Shilling * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
As ever, Trollope writes about family life with wit, intelligence and verve * GUARDIAN *

“Family Relationships”

It's been ages since I read anything by Joanna Trollope probably not since her early novels The Rector's Wife and The Choir but I thought I'd try her again as this, her latest novel, resonates with me... More
