For eight-year-old Rufus life has become complicated. His parents, Josie and Tom, have divorced and are setting off on separate paths. But now, other people have had to become involved, like his mother's new husband Matthew and his father's new friend Elizabeth. What's even worse is that there are other children too, Matthew's three teenagers, who have been conditioned by their mother Nadine to hate his mother Josie. Matthew's children come to their father for weekends and make it clear how much they loathe Josie. Rufus secretly prefers to be with his father, in his peaceful flat in Bath, where he realises that he doesn't actually hate the idea of a stepmother, if she is peaceful and sane like Elizabeth. But where other people's children are concerned, neat solutions seldom occur ...

Industry Reviews

"This compelling, and at times heart-rending, novel is Trollope at her very best" * Ideal Home * "A gripping read - as shrewdly observant of psychological and domestic detail as anything she has written" * Daily Telegraph * "Wonderfully and compulsively readable... She can be as subtle as Austen, as sharp as Bronte. Trollope's brilliant" * Mail on Sunday * "Trollope has shown herself capable of such emotional depth, that although you turn the pages quickly, it is with trembling fingers" * The Times *

Joanna Trollope

About the Author


Joanna Trollope was born on 9 December 1943 in her grandfather's rectory in Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire, England, daughter of Rosemary Hodson and Arthur George Cecil Trollope, and is the eldest of three siblings.

Joanna's first books to be published were a number of historical novels under the name Caroline Harvey. These were followed by Britannia’s Daughters, a historical study of women in the British Empire and more recently, her enormously successful contemporary works of fiction. The Choir was Joanna's first contemporary novel, followed by A Village Affair and A Passionate Man. The Rector's Wife, first published in 1991, was Joanna's first number one bestseller, and made her into a household name. Since then, she has written eighteen more bestselling contemporary novels.

When Joanna considers what has happened to her career in the last ten years, she often thinks, as her friend Jilly Cooper once said, 'You’d believe it, wouldn’t you, if it happened to someone else'.
