A moving story of family relationships If you take a devoted wife and mother and push her out of her cosy home in Australia into a whole series of crises and new situations in England, don't expect her to be unmarked by it. If this trusting wife then finds out about her husband's philandering, you can expect big changes to occur-especially when she realizes he's just had an affair with her best friend. And if all this happens at a time when she is winning acclaim as an embroidery artist and has just come into an inheritance that will give her financial independence, then the outcome of the trip may not he quite what her manipulative husband had bargained for.

Booklist Review

Rosalind appears to live a good life in Australia with three grown children and Paul, her husband of 25 years, but her children have problems and Paul is wedded to his job, which requires constant travel. When Paul announces that he has accepted a summer placement in England, Rosalind sees it as the perfect opportunity to improve things, but business keeps Paul away and Rosalind is left to explore Sexton Close on her own. One day she falls and badly twists her ankle. Luckily, Jonathan discovers her and helps her to his nearby home. The two immediately hit it off and soon are innocently in love. But when her children arrive in England, Rosalind learns that Paul has been unfaithful, a family tragedy occurs, and Rosalind must use her newfound independence to make some serious decisions about her life. Full of rich, realistic characters and believable plots, gifted storyteller Jacobs' latest is an amazingly touching tale about finding one's self. --Megan Kalan Copyright 2003 Booklist
