When single Daisy goes to stay with Min and her family, each woman must confront the path she has chosen. Daisy has spent the intervening years as a Cambridge academic – unmarried, independent and happily conscious of having life just as she wants it. Eccentric Min has been struggling with her work as a writer, a large old house she can’t manage, difficult children and a bad-tempered husband. The two women’s renewed friendship thrives – until Daisy and Robert find themselves attracted to each other.
Elegantly written, witty and perceptive, ‘Out of Love’ is a novel that explores various kinds of love – love between parents and their children; love between friends; sexual love – and asks which in the end matters more, friendship or passion?
‘Out of Love’ was Victoria Clayton’s first novel, followed by ‘Past Mischief’, ‘Dance With Me’ and ‘Running Wild’: all four are being republished through the Kindle Store in Autumn 2012.
