About this book:

An entertaining, warm and quirky novel of families, secrets and the truth of love

Judith shares her life with her partner Joanna on the lonely wilds of Bodmin Moor, far from the memories and trauma of her childhood.

But when Judith’s sister, Deborah, is tragically widowed, the women agree to meet. And what is intended to be a harmonious reunion turns into an entanglement of resentment, jealousy and desire, as aspects of the past force themselves into an uneasy present, with some surprising results.

Gale is a charmingly idiosyncratic writer who could not write a cliche if he tried’
