'This is the time to run away, she thinks, to call it a mistake, to race back to home and safety. If I don't go home I will never feel safe again.'
On meeting Micajah Burnett, the son of an old school friend, Eve Armanton is faced with a choice. Years of a miserable marriage means she's as broken as the beautiful antique violin she's just found, and Micajah offers a spark of life, an opportunity to reawaken her sense.
If Eve takes a leap into this new world, she'll be leaving behind her old self for good. Her happiness depends on forging a new life, but at the end of her journey, who will Eve have become?

"At last. A sexy and serious novel that deals with that persistent prejudice - love between an 'older woman' and a younger man. Sensational." (Rachel Johnson)
"Absolutely terrific: powerful, beautifully paced, controlled and assured." (Elizabeth Buchan)
