Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Since publishing her first, critically acclaimed novel English Correspondence, Janet Davey has become known for her ability to write brilliantly about characters driven to break free of the self-imposed limits and social conventions that hem them in. Candia McWilliam says of her work, It secures one s faith in the moral force of art . Davey s third novel opens with a chance meeting between Abe and Richard in a taxi queue outside Paddington station. Abe is in his early twenties, a time when life is still fluid. Richard is married with two daughters. He and his wife, Vivienne, live in suburban security in Middlesex and attend an evangelical Christian church. Yet Richard s meeting with Abe opens a door he thought he had closed for ever. With Vivienne and the children away on a skiing holiday, he invites Abe into his house an impulsive action that will send ripples not only through his own life and that of his wife, but through the fragile existence of Abe s younger sister Kirsty, who is herself unsure what is the best way to settle down . Set on the peripheries of London in Harrow, Crystal Palace and Kensal Rise this remarkable novel places centre-stage the events and emotion
