Description

 

 

From the Women’s Prize-shortlisted author of Ordinary People.

After fifty years in London, Alice wants to live out her days in the land of her birth.

Her three children are divided on whether she stays or goes, and in the wake of their father’s death, the imagined stability of the family begins to fray.

Meanwhile youngest daughter Melissa has never let go of a love she lost, and Michael in return, even within the sturdy walls of his marriage to the sparkling Nicole, is haunted by the failed perfection of the past.

As Alice’s final decision draws closer, all that is hidden between Melissa and her sisters, Michael and Nicole, rises to the surface . .

. Set against the shadows of Grenfell and a country in turmoil, Diana Evans’s ordinary people confront fundamental questions.

How should we raise our children? How to do right by our parents? And how, in the midst of everything, can we satisfy ourselves?

A gorgeous novel from one of our most outstanding writers’ – Bernadine Evaristo
