Summary
Home is where the heart is - but what happens to your heart when the people you love are scattered around the world? Hannah and Matt are very happy together, living in London's cool East End with their two young children. Hannah has a job she loves as a beauty editor and Matt is always just about to break through as a songwriter. But then events start to pull them apart, with Hannah certain they'd be much better off down in the English countryside with her family - and Matt's mum needing them with her, back in Sydney, 17 000 kilometres away. Hannah's mother, Marguerite, mends broken china, but can she repair her damaged marriage? And Matt's vivacious young cousin, Ali, feels lost, looking for love in a strange city. All of them have unsettling secrets and while some are better shared, others might be best left unspoken - the problem is knowing which are which. In this story of three women's search for a place to call home, Maggie Alderson crosses continents and generations to explore how we find happiness - and whether love can survive betrayal
Summary
This is the story of three women: Hannah, in her thirties and happily married, struggling to reconcile motherhood and her not-so-glamorous career in the beauty industry; her mother Marguerite, who patiently copes with an alcoholic, abusive husband but wonders if this is all her life has to offer; and Hannah's young cousin-in-law Ali, who is finding her feet in a strange city as she sets out on her life's journey. In her most daring and sophisticated novel yet, Maggie Alderson explores the idea of how we find happiness--and whether love can survive betrayal.
