A novel by

 
 
It's never too late for second chances... For Claire Wetherby, widowhood at forty-one means one thing: release. She has been married for years to a man who was utterly selfish and a lot older. Now, free at last, the world lies before her. But then there's Sally, her twenty-one-year-old daughter; pretty, spoilt and weak, under the influence of young Lord Nortwell, who is a drug addict and lay-about. Worse still, there's Hilda, the sister-in-law, who has always disliked and resented Claire and is now the executor of her brother's unfair will. And finally there's Milly, Claire's aged mother who cannot admit that youth has gone. All these problems Claire has to face alone. But in doing so she not only finds her true self at last, but another way of life and a second chance at love.
