The past has a habit of tracking us down. And tripping us up.When Kate was twenty-two, she had an intense and passionate affair with a married man, Callum, which ended in heartbreak. Kate thought she'd never get over it. Seventeen years later, life has moved on - Kate, now a successful actress, is living in London, married to Matt and mother to little Tallulah. Meanwhile Callum and his wife Belinda are happy together, living in Edinburgh and watching their kids grow up. The past, it would seem, is well and truly behind them all. But then Kate meets Callum again. And they are faced with a choice: to walk away from each other . . . or to risk finding out what might have been.Second chances are a rare gift in life. But that doesn't mean they should always be taken . .
I was really looking forward to reading this book as I'm a huge fan of Ruth Jones but to be honest I was fairly disappointed. If you're expecting Ruth's usual comedy amongst the drama there isn't any. I was hoping for a rom-com buts it's a miserable story of infedelity spanned over 30 plus years and the affects on their lives and that of the partners. Not sure I'd want to read another if it's in the same genre or as drawn out.
