Abstract:

"Laura is a happily married mother of two. But when her college boyfriend resurfaces after twenty years, she's forced to compare the passion of that first love with the domesticity of her suburban life in a gentrified English village. What if she'd stayed with him? Would she be happier? And what is happiness, really? Little does she know that many of her neighbors are struggling with their own personal crises. Among the cast of characters are a rector who has lost his faith, a school teacher who longs to be a screenwriter but receives only rejections, a struggling farmer who resents the influx of young professionals and their privileged offspring to this formerly rural area, and a journalist who can't stop sleeping with her ex, even though it's ruining her life"--Cover, p. 2.
