Georgia Manifold leaves a family home over - flowing with love, with books and politics, poetry and music, and passionate outspoken argument. It is a life dominated by a father whom she resembles, and a mother who understands her too well. From this inheritance, Georgia sets out to make her own life. The sudden death of her father draws her home again, away from the security of an understanding lover and into a destructive affair. Consumed by the seductiveness of sexual love, Georgia's life is thrown off balance. Johanna Murray - Smith, an acclaimed playwright and screenwriter, has written a stunning debut novel.
