As this book opens, our lead characters Jane and her husband Leon are arguing.
He fared far better in my mind. She’s an aspiring author and her novel’s just been rejected by publishers after a year of hard work. Leon – a published author – suggests perhaps she could take a break and focus her attention a little more on their kids.
Which would seem to be unfair, condescending and chauvinistic until we learn it’s Jane’s sixth novel and Leon’s been pretty supportive so far.
Their fight’s quickly forgotten however and they’re about to head out when tragedy strikes. (Dum-dum!)
