Diana and her sister Antonia are house-sharing spinsters who have never got over their respective first loves. Diana owns a gift shop, but rarely works there. Antonia is unemployed, having lost her teaching job at an all girls' school following a shocking outburst in the classroom after enduring years of torment.

Diana is a regular at the local library, Antonia enjoys her "nice" magazines, and they treat themselves to coffee and cake once a week in the village cafe. Naomi lives alone, haunted by the failure of her two marriages. She works in the library, doesn't get on with her younger colleagues, and rarely cooks herself a proper meal.

Secretly she longs for a Boden frock. When a body is discovered in the local quarry, all three women's lives are turned upside down. And when Diana's old flame Gill turns up unexpectedly, tensions finally spill over and threaten to destroy the outwardly peaceful lives all three women have carefully constructed around themselves.

Helen takes us back to the fictional Shropshire village of Morevale in this, her brilliant second novel which exposes the fragilities and strengths of three remarkably unremarkable women.
