It’s not easy being the mother of a twelve-year-old boy who’s in love with his babysitter and having trouble at school. Nor are matters helped by the unexpected arrival of an elderly mother who’s suddenly footloose and fancy free. At least Susie Vine feels secure at Arland & Shaw, London’s leading theatrical agency, where her clients love her almost as much as they love themselves. Then the man who broke her heart comes back into her life and she’s forced to ask herself whether she was right to leave him all those years ago. Or is someone else waiting in the wings…?
