Read full description of the books After Everything:For readers who were swept away by Under the Tuscan Sun, charmed by Le Divorce, and intrigued by The Descendants, here is a “moving, dangerous, shrewd, and un-putdown-able story” (Robert Drewe, author of Our Sunshine) about midlife coming-of-age.
They’ve been the best of friends for decades and seen everything—marriage, divorce, success, and bankruptcy. They think that there are no more surprises, that they’ve learned all of life’s lessons. But they’re wrong. They’ve only just begun.
Recently divorced and seeking to find herself, Penny moves to a picturesque town in France, happy to live alone—that is until she meets an irresistible American philosophy professor. Meanwhile, handsome bachelor Peter falls head over heels for the first time in his life with curvaceous, sexy, and fiercely independent Frieda; Tim and Angie face challenges in their childless, co-dependent marriage; and Jeremy, twice divorced and the most successful of them all, struggles with a destructive addiction.
At the heart of the story is Sandy, Penny’s ex-husband and once an acclaimed songwriter. Realizing perhaps too late that he’s taken his wife and children for granted, he attempts to reconcile with his son and daughter. But before he can make amends with them, Sandy has to confront a secret tragedy that has haunted him, and his relationships, for decades.
Wonderfully wise and deeply engaging, After Everything is “an absorbing read” (Kirkus Reviews) about the frailties and joys of friendship and family and the struggle of learning how to live in a changing world.
Read information about the authorI worked as a journalist and television producer after leaving university. It never occurred to me to write fiction. Like many working single mothers, I was too busy and too tired to try for anything more.
But my two children grew up. Finally I could ditch the day job. I moved from London to a small farm in Somerset, where I ran a B and B and learned how to be a short order cook and iron mountains of bedlinen very quickly. I also studied creative writing at the University of Oxford and at Bath Spa University.Then a fight against breast cancer gave me the impetus I needed. No time to lose!
At the age of 62, my first novel, After Everything, was published by Simon and Schuster in the U.S. and by Picador in Australia. I'm currently writing my second, in between looking out the window at my sheep and my hens.
