When Ginny became pregnant as an undergraduate years ago she never regretted her decision to leave university and raise her daughter as a single mum.

When Ginny became pregnant as an undergraduate years ago she never regretted her decision to leave university and raise her daughter as a single mum. Now, though, with nineteen-year-old Marie off travelling in her gap year, a blast from the past brings surprising news that threatens to throw her well-ordered life into disarray... And then suddenly Ginny's sister, impulsive, free-spirited Charlotte, returns from abroad. She has always prided herself on taking the road less travelled but now, bringing with her a surprise of her own, is she finally ready to settle down? Or does her heart lie somewhere further afield? And both Ginny and Charlotte are baffled by their mother's behaviour. Surely a woman whose husband has left her for another woman should be displaying more emotion than what Jane exhibits? Is she hiding her grief beneath her calm exterior or could she really be happier living alone? Everything seems to be falling apart. But maybe it's just falling into place.
