On New Year's Eve, Polly Mackay is contemplating her life. She had been happily married with two grown-up children, a thriving business as a perfume blogger, and a glamorous, ageing, ex-model mother who keeps things ... interesting. But when her husband announced that he needed time away from her and promptly vanished, everything she took for granted was thrown into disarray.

As Polly grapples with David's disappearance she clings to a few new friends to keep her going. Shirlee, the loud-mouthed yoga student; Guy, the mysterious, infuriating and hugely talented perfumer; and Edward, an old friend from university, who sparks a new sense of possibility ...

But while she distracts herself with the heady world of luxury perfume, she can't keep reality at bay forever, and eventually she is forced to confront some difficult truths - about her husband, about herself, and about who she really wants to be.

Praise for Maggie Alderson:

‘Fact: Maggie Alderson is a goddamn national treasure. Her writing is pithy, warm, incisive and touching, her characters extremely lovable and relatably flawed.' - Cosmopolitan

Maggie, in her own words -

I was born in London, brought up in Staffordshire and educated at the University of St Andrews.

I have edited four magazines: British ELLE and ES (I was Editor of the Year for that – get me) in London, then Cleo (acting editor) and Mode in Sydney. I also worked on the Evening Standard and the Sydney Morning Herald. Newspapers are my spiritual home. My column in Good Weekend magazine has been running for over ten years and has been collected into three books.

I have written five novels, and co-edited three books of short stories for the charity War Child. I have most recently co-edited an absolutely filthy book of rude stories, with my writer pals Kathy Lette, Jessica Adams and Imogen Edwards-Jones.

I currently live in Hastings Old Town on the south coast of England, with my husband and seven-year old daughter, but I move a lot. I have about 150 pairs of shoes and I am currently writing another novel.
