Details

Secrets abound in a quiet English village, in this novel filled with “piercing insights into married life and smalltown living” (Publishers Weekly).
 
Laura is a content married mother of two—but when her first love resurfaces after twenty years, she begins to question her choices. She can’t help but compare the passion of that relationship with the domesticity of her suburban life. What if she’d stayed with him? Would she be happier? And what is happiness, really?
 
Right now, Laura feels a little alone. But in fact, many others in her gentrified corner of the English countryside—including a rector who’s lost his faith, a frustrated school teacher, and a successful single mother who can’t get over her ex—are struggling with their own personal crises as well . . .
