You think you have everything. A happy marriage. Children you love. A job you enjoy. A house you've made into a home. Then, almost in the blink of an eye, you lose it. All.

When Rachel decides things aren't working and asks Andrew to move out, she thinks she knows what she's doing; she thinks she knows how it will be, how Andrew will react, how the children will cope. After all, relationships end all the time, and everyone survives -- don't they?

But Rachel is wrong, and her decision has consequences no one could have foreseen.

'A compelling study of a family cast adrift. Written with subtlety and sensitivity, this deceptively simple tale pulls the reader closer with each page' Catherine O'Flynn, author of What Was Lost

'Detailed and free-flowing; the shocking, emotional ending will leave you gasping for air' Easy Living
