It has been an idyllic summer, Tess reflects, as she packs up the Cornish holiday home in preparation for plunging back into the cold reality of normal life. An idyllic summer, and there will be more--so why does she feel awash with a nameless fear about returning home? Alone at the holiday cottage for one last night with her young daughter, she has the time, and the silence, to take stock of her life. A life, which, on the surface, has everything a woman could want. So why, now the children are growing up, does she want more?

Carrie Adams, successful television producer, mother and wife, is about to return to work. Baby Tom has fallen in love with the new nanny; six-year-old Rebecca isn't too keen, but hopes the nanny will at least be better organised than Mummy. Carrie meanwhile is desperate to reinvent herself from housewife to svelte career woman. Because this is what today's women do, don't they? They're smart, successful, glamorous wives and perfect part-time mothers. They can be brilliant at work and brilliant in bed. Carrie lives by the maxim that working full-time is no problem as long as she has the right childcare, and has never doubted for a moment that this is her path in life--until reality begins to hit home. She isn't happy, the children aren't happy, and husband Mike--until recently trying desperately to be a New Man--is now becoming more and more detached from family life. She begins to think the unthinkable. Perhaps, just perhaps, she doesn't have to do all this

Lucy Beresford knows her middle-class family thinks she's married beneath her when she gets together with the devastatingly sexy Rob. He's gorgeous, he's thoughtful, he's clever--but he's undeniably working class. Her parents cannot believe that she would choose him above Max, her so-suitable former boyfriend--who is truly 'one of us'. Gradually the differences between Rob and Lucy--at first so unimportant--begin to loom large, as they argue over how the house should be decorated, how the children should be educated, and whether the evening meal should be called 'dinner' or 'tea'. Diana Appleyard scratches the surface to reveal the petty snobberies which still exist in most of us, and which make Rob and Lucy ... a class apart

Three couples are friends and neighbours. Tom, lazy and charming, looks after the children and thinks about writing a novel while his ambitious wife Sarah pursues her career as a journalist.

One winter's evening, Laure and Tom dance together at a local ball, and suddenly a world of possibilities opens up between them.
