How far would you go for love: a white lie, a small deceit, full-scale fraud…?

When Charlotte Briggs’ husband Ed is sent down for fraud, she cannot find it in her heart to forgive him for what he has done. Ostracised from their social circle, she flees to the wilds of Exmoor to nurse her broken heart. But despite the slower pace of life, she soon finds that she is not the only person whose life is in turmoil.

There’s Sebastian, enfant terrible of the British art scene, desperately trying to find his muse amongst the empty bottles.

Then Fitch, who married the high-spirited Hayley thinking he would find wedded bliss, but instead has found marital hell.

And finally Penny, local GP and recent divorcee, who is determined not to hurtle into middle age embittered and lonely.

Over the long winter months, the four of them share advice, copious bottles of wine, laughter … and maybe more.
