Women awake to all sorts of realisations in this collection: awareness of love, of deceit, of loss, of the passing of time – realisations which change their lives for ever.

Set against backgrounds which range from west Wales in the nineteen-twenties to Hampstead in the nineteen-seventies, these stories show the full range of Siân James’ subtle gifts as a storyteller.

“She writes with grace, as to the manner born” Susan Hill
