On a weekend in late summer, Jo is fleeing to London with her children when, a few miles into the journey from the Kent coast, her teenage daughter jumps off the train. Since Jo's husband left her, she has been caring single-handedly for her three children, working in a junk shop to make ends meet. A new love affair was just beginning to give her life meaning until the man inexplicably lashed out at her. Jo's instinct was to pack hasty bags and head to her family in London. As we follow Jo's attempt to cope with the repercussions of her daughter's action we gradually learn what led up to the attack from her lover, and begin to understand how desperately each of them would like to escape the ties that bind and begin afresh.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Touching and memorable" * Sunday Times *
"Davey, like Penelope Fitzgerald, manages to convey a great deal with very little... triumphant" * Daily Telegraph *
"Beautifully written and perfectly judged with some unforgettable moments-it's like a depth charge - very understated, very subtle" * Patricia Duncker *
"To read this novel is to feel one's life improved, one's faith in the moral force of art secured" * Evening Standard *
