Harold s death leaves Julia a widow, alone and struggling with grief as well as with her new life. How can she begin to build new relationships with her friends, what does she now owe to her children, or they to her For the first time Julia has to learn independence, she needs to discover who she is when she is no longer a wife and is now a mother to children who do not need her. Can Julia find a freedom, an identity, which has never existed in her life before Janet McNeill is one of the great writers of the disillusions of middle age, her wry humour and compassion builds a spare and moving world, while her perceptive and intelligent writing is honest and unflinching in its understanding of the emotional conflicts of family life and the ironies of ordinary life.
