Book Description

Jan. 1 2008
While Sally sacrificed her career for love, Anna has done the opposite. Which of them made the right choice?
Sally seems to have everything—a marriage to Edward, a much-loved baby son, and a dream house. Yet beneath an apparently content exterior, Sally struggles with the legacy of Edward's past—his ex-wife, his resentful stepdaughter, and Edward's mixed feelings about the family he left behind. When Sally discovers the house holds a secret, her need to escape the strains of her marriage leads her on a quest to discover the truth. But can she solve the challenges of the present as well as the past? While Sally struggles, Anna moves into the garden flat downstairs. A driven workaholic, Anna has always shunned domesticity, although ironically her new project is a reality show called Marriage Menders. Digging beneath the surface of other people's relationships leads her to ask questions she has so far managed to avoid, about the importance of love and family. Then an error of judgment threatens to destroy everything she has worked for—and leaves her wondering about her entire life.

Predictable, but enjoyable light reading and well-written. The characters are well fleshed out and one is interested to see what happens to them in life. Typical if you like Varley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! Oct. 19 2010
By JLH - Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoyed this book. The main characters are all likeable but flawed, in ways that are easy to relate to.The Victorian 'story-within-a-story' made it even more interesting. It was a quick and fun read. I will read more of Varley's books after this.
