Betty Trask Award Best First Novel (nominee)
As Charles Redfern lies motionless in hospital, his wife, Anne, and daughter, Charlotte, are forced to confront their relationships with him - and with each other. Anne, once beautiful and clever, has paled beside her husband's harsh brilliance. She mechanically attends endless rounds of drinks parties, trying to ignore the guilt that trails behind her like a shadow. Charlotte, battling with an inner darkness, is desperate to prevent her relationship with not-yet-divorced Gabriel from disintegrating. Both women must face the full truth of Charles's hold over them, and the uncertainty of a future without the figure that has dominated them for so long.
