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." "Rich in detail and atmosphere, and telling the story of a family break-up and a father's breakdown. Nell Leyshon's second novel is uncompromising in its reminder of how easily the life we thought we had can slip through our fingers. At the same time, however, it reminds us that if chaos lurks close to the surface, then so too - sometimes - does the possibility of repair and redemption."--BOOK JACKET." ;
