AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'I'm a lucky woman, thinks Susanna Greenfield. And why wouldn't she? Her handsome, successful husband is a loving father to their two teenage children. Her mother is her dearest friend, and her scatty but adored younger sister seems to have finally found some stability in her life. Susanna has a solid career as an art teacher, and if, as she's recently discovered, there's a hole inside her where her creative spirit used to be - is that really such a big price to pay?

'But beneath the carefully maintained surface, seismic forces are at work. Fault lines are forming, not only in Susanna, but within each beloved member of her family. In a single, tragically ill-judged moment, the fabric it has taken a lifetime to construct can be torn apart.

'Human frailties, and the power of the ties that bind us: this is Kate Veitch's territory, explored with characteristic warmth and honesty in her absorbing portrait of a family thrown into crisis.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Epigraph: All truths wait in all things
    They neither hasten their own delivery nor resist it,
    They do not need the obstetric forceps of the surgeon.
    The insignificant is as big to me as any.
    What is less or more than a touch? From Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself', found underlined among Clarice Beckett's papers.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording, electronic resource, braille,
