It was then that it struck me, with terrifying clarity. I was going to die at any moment. I was going to die, moreover, in a pair of tartan pyjamas and a grubby black cardigan. For whatever was attached to the headlights in front of me was driving on my side of the road...' So begins Sally Matthews' date with destiny. She doesn't actually believe in destiny, of course - she's way too busy looking after her husband, arranging her step-daughter's wedding, and humouring her mum-on-a-mission (which currently involves Tony Blair). No surprise, then, that she's out late at night with nothing but a dog and a cricket bat for company, for her teenage daughter needs picking up from a friend's house, and picking up is what mothers do best. In short, Sally hasn't time for a near-death experience. However handsome the man who's about to run her off the road...But destiny is no respecter of circumstance, and Sally finds herself picking up something else too. Not an illness, but the lingering image of a stranger. His name is Nick Brown and though she doesn't yet know it, he's about to turn her whole life upside down.
Straight On Till Morning is a novel about infidelity and about falling in love when you really don't mean to. Funny, yet poignant, this is the story of one woman's journey through the longest night of her life.
