Synopsis

Kate is smart, successful and adept at making people feel at home: her husband Adam, her children, the guests of the hotel chain she works for. But her own foundations are about to be knocked away – for while Kate has been building a life, Adam's attention has been elsewhere. Who is the woman he’s been emailing? And whose number keeps showing up on his phone? Kate tries to hold things together for her daughters, but what can she say, now Adam won’t be coming home? As Kate searches for answers, she is forced to reassess her family, her future, and the man she thought she knew . . .

In the media

Wise and subtle and witty . . . filled with humanity and warmth. A compulsively readable book about a breakup from a brilliant new writer.
Maggie Gee
Full of elegant prose and emotional insight . . . With grace and humour, she immerses the reader in Kate's psychological disorientation . . . As an anatomy of a broken marriage, Lover is a skilfully observed, evocative and affecting novel
Observer
Real, delicious summer reading, one for your suitcase, but with the bite of truthfulness . . . telling the story of a husband's adulterous affair with unflinching truthfulness but also wit and generosity of spirit. A wise novel with values that is also elegantly written and a gripping read
