From the bestselling author of The Cazelet Chronicles comes Elizabeth Jane Howard's Falling.

Harry Kent is a sensitive man in late middle age, a reader and a thinker, without means perhaps but not without charm.

Daisy has recovered from her unhappy past by learning to be self-sufficient, and viewing trust as a weakness. But there is still a part of her that yearns to be cared for once more.

It is this part that Henry sees, and with dedicated and calculated patience he works at her defences. So it is that despite all attempts to resist his attentions, Daisy finds herself falling under Henry's spell . . .

'Completely unputdownable' Independent

'A superb storyteller whose elegantly written novels never fail to pull you in... she tells a taut and compelling story with a subtle build-up of tension that will keep the reader worrying till the end' Sunday Express

'An engaging study of love which explores our deepest needs and desires' Tatler

'I found myself seduced by her clever evocation of people and places, her perfect ear for dialogue and her elegant, sensitive portrayal of contemporary life' Sunday Telegraph

'A novel which, although full of subtle touches, is as unputdownable as any thriller' The Times
