Adele Parks' emotionally powerful new novel asks the question: are there limits as to what you'd do for love? Eloise Hamilton is a Londoner born and bred, so it is a momentous day when she agrees to uproot to Dartmouth, leaving behind her perfect world so her husband can finally live in his. Then, when the family is thrust into unexpected turmoil, Eloise finds she is the one holding everything together - and by an ever-weakening thread.

Moves from mind numbingly dull detail and then adds lots of bigger sub plots all in one go.

Narrator was too formal
