What do you do if you've been married to a man for half your life and out of nowhere he leaves your bed - permanently? When this happens to Jeanie, she's furious and determined to confront George, her husband of thirty years. Is he in love with someone else? What did she do wrong? He won't tell her. The brightest day of her week is Thursday, the day Jeanie takes her granddaughter to the park. There, one day, she meets Ray, kind, easy to talk to, and gorgeous - he is everything George isn't. But does she have the courage, while facing opposition from all sides, to turn her life upside down for another shot at love?

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A warm and well-written case for love affairs in later life' Daily Telegraph. * Daily Telegraph *
'Her portrayal of the first true romance of Jeanie's life will captivate both single and married women as her writing instantly takes you back to those moments of true passion that blocked out everything else in the world' bestchicklit. * Bestchicklit *
'Hilary Boyd creates a poignant portrait of a stale marriage and the ties that bind couples together' Chicklitclub. * Chicklitclub *
'[A] tender and intriguing love story ... Boyd is as canny as Joanna Trollope at observing family life - and better than Trollope at jokes. But she is at her best when quietly dismantling the scaffolding that families spend years putting up to protect themselves from each other' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
'Move over Mummy porn, it's time for Granny lit' The Times. * The Times *
