Description

When her husband of three decades announces he has a younger lover and wants a divorce, Ella Ferguson realises how protected her life has been - she has 'seen no evil, heard no evil and spoken no evil'. Alone, enraged, she must come to terms with her failed marriage and her relationships with her adult children. A Change in the Lighting, Amy Witting's third novel, is the compelling story of a woman cast adrift.
