Publisher's Summary

Ester is a family therapist with an appointment book that catalogues the anxieties of the middle class: loneliness, relationships, death. She spends her days helping others find happiness, but her own family relationships are tense and frayed. Ester is yearning to fall in love again. Meanwhile, her ex-husband's past decisions are catching up with him, her sister is struggling through her own directionless life and her mother is about to make a choice that will profoundly affect them all.

A gentle yet powerful story

It slowly drew me in and by the end I was hooked and wanted more. The narrator brought the characters to life and was pleasant to listen to.
