A life-affirming novel about the power of inter-generational female friendship from the author of number one bestsellers Her Husband’s Mistake, The Missing Wife and The Hideaway.

Two women form an unlikely friendship as they face up to shocking truths about the men they’ve loved - and take the reins on deciding their future.

Deira is setting out on the holiday she’d planned with her long-term partner Gavin - only she’s on her own. Gavin will not be amused when he finds out she’s ‘borrowed’ his car, but since their brutal break-up Deira’s not been acting rationally. Maybe a drive through beautiful France will help her see things differently.

Grace is also travelling alone, each stage of her journey outlined in advance by her late husband. Ken was head of the household when he was alive, and it seems he’s still in charge. His last decision was a surprise - could there be more surprises to come? There’s only one way to find out, galling though it is to dance again to Ken’s tune.

Thrown together by chance, Grace and Deira find that it’s easier to share secrets with a stranger, especially in the shimmering sunny countryside of Spain and France. But they soon find that there’s no escaping the truth, whether you’re running away from it or racing towards it...
