In her wildly acclaimed new novel Claire Kilroy creates an unforgettable heroine, whose fierce love for her young son clashes with the seismic change to her own identity.

As her marriage strains and she struggles with questions of love, autonomy, creativity and the passing of time, an old friend makes a welcome return - but can he really offer a lifeline to the woman she used to be?

Readers adore Soldier Sailor:

***** 'About as perfect a piece of writing as you'll find.'

***** 'I loved this book. Any woman, with or without children, will see themselves mirrored in this narrative'
