A summer holiday in Cornwall is full of surprises.
     Every July, the lucky owners of Cornish holiday homes set off for their annual break. They close up their desirable semis in smartish London suburbs -- having turned off the Aga and turned on the burglar alarm -- and look forward to a carefree, restful, somehow more fulfilling summer.
     Clare is more than usually ready for her holiday. Her daughter, Miranda, is hitting adolescence bigtime, and her husband Jack is harbouring unsettling thoughts of a change in lifestyle. No wonder that Clare is contemplating a bit of extra-marital adventure, possibly with Eliot, the successful, heavy-drinking author in the adjoining holiday property.
     Unexpected disasters occur, revelations are made and, as the summer ends, real life will never be quite the same again.
JUDY ASTLEY became an author of witty contemporary novels after several years as a dressmaker, illustrator, painter and parent. She has two grown-up daughters and lives in London and Cornwall with her husband.
