Four generations of the Haldanes are gathering for a family celebration. It ought to be the perfect reunion, but behind the doors of Fortune House, their beloved family home, life is not as idyllic as it seems. Caroline and David's marriage, scarred by a tragic loss many years before, is back in the spotlight as David's retirement is thrust upon them. Meanwhile, their three daughters, Fiona, Deborah and Vonnie, have brought with them not just husbands and children, but crises and conflicts of their own. As the holiday unfolds, it starts to become clear that the ties that bind the Haldanes together are in danger of unravelling entirely. A moving and compelling portrayal of a modern family with all the warmth, pain, humour, anger and love that come with being related.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
'A warm compelling read' -- Red Magazine 'A poignant and well-observed novel by the bestselling author of MOTHER'S DAY.' -- Sainsbury's Magazine 'Sharp, intelligent and moving; and I suspect many women will recognise parts of themselves within these pages, just as they did in Allison Pearson's I Don't Know How She Does It.' -- Herald on MOTHER'S DAY 'It's warm, energetic and frequently laugh-out-loud funny. It's also sad and pleasingly difficult, avoiding the easy answers to all the dilemmas it throws up... An impressive first work' -- Stirling Observer on MOTHER'S DAY 'A funny and moving story of upper-middle-class angst at the beginning of the 21st century and a reflection on the importance of friends' -- Good Book Guide on MOTHER'S DAY 'Perfect read!' -- Woman on MOTHER'S DAY
