'A wise, tender novel about family and love' Monica Ali


After fifty years in London, Alice wants to return to Nigeria, but her children are divided on whether she should stay or go.

Alice’s daughters Melissa, Carol and Adele are in conflict. Their father’s sudden death has left behind a web of secrets and resentments, but can they put their differences aside to grant their mother her wish?

Meanwhile Melissa has never quite let go of a love she lost, and in return her ex-husband Michael, is haunted by the failed perfection of the past.

As Alice’s final decision draws closer, all that is hidden between Melissa and her siblings, and Michael, and his new wife Nicole, rises to the surface…

'Heart and humour in abundance . . . The people on the page are real and raw' The Times
