Beth King is facing empty-nest syndrome as her only son, Nathan, looks forwrad to leaving home for university. Jack Solomon, a local estate agent, is having trouble coming to terms with the shock of his wife leaving him for his best friend. Jaz Rafferty is an intensely private seventeen-year-old girl, who writes to escape her large, boisterous family. Victor Blackmore is an opinionated know-it-all, who claims to be writing the blockbuster novel every publisher will be clamouring for. What they all have in common is a need to escape, as well as a desire to keep their lives as private as possible. Even Dulcie who, at the age of sixty-three, has been having an affair with a married man for the last three years. As they grow more confident in their writing skills, friendships develop and gradually they come to realise that a little openness isn't necessarily a bad thing.show more
