Description

If Life Begins at Forty, then Charlotte Turner's not off to the best of starts. On top of a recent divorce, and trouble with her twelve-year-old son, the husband of her closest friend has just started to show a bit too much interest in her as a newly-single woman. But only when Charlotte has faced up to some uncomfortable truths about her past can she finally shed the unhappy skin she's been so comfortable in, and open up her life - and her heart - to all the promise and possibility that her future holds. Is life, for Charlotte, about to begin at last...?

Review quote

Through her characters, Brookfield skillfully illuminates the relationship9s, dilemmas and compromises that define so many lives * Sunday Express * Few contemporary British novelists writing today explore the messy tangles of close human relationships with quite such warm perceptiveness as Brookfield * Daily Mirror * What is refreshing here is the author's conspicuous sanity and her sharp line in defence of reason... It could be sentimental, but it isn't * Guardian * Few contemporary British novelists writing today explore the messy tangles of close human relationships with quite such warm perceptiveness as Brookfield * Daily Mirror *
