Something good for Jane Deakin turns out to be a new baby, which is born after a one night fling with a man she met on a Scottish isle, where she went to learn about stain glass design. The new baby disrupts relations with her 15 year old daughter, Hannah, but Han eventually comes round and the novel has a happy ending, with Jane, her four month son, Luke, and Han about to move into a new house. The novel began when Han was 5 and she and Jane moved into another new house, which Jane found when her marriage w/ Max broke up. Max owns a bike shop, which seemed to run a spoke into his marriage w/ Jane. They remain friends after their breakup and don't even get divorced, but they go on to lead their own lives. Max moves into another new house and starts an affair with Veronica, a beautiful neighbor, whose daugher Zoe becomes Han's best friend. Then her son, Dylan, who has artistic talent, does, and Han is even happier. The lives of Jane, Han and to a lesser extent Max, make the novel go. It's very good contemporary fiction, with moterhood and the teenage lifestyle beautifully portrayed in a smoothly flowing story.
I was intrigued by Gibson's Lucky Girl, where the main character is another single woman who teaches flute. Jane Deakin follows in this tradition which has elevated Gibson to one the best contemporary British novelists.
