However, although marriage with Duncan was just what Phoebe thought she wanted, she finds living with him full-time leaves a lot to be desired. For one thing, Duncan never discusses his feelings with Phoebe, in fact he hardly speaks to her unless he has to - partly due to his stammer and partly due to the difficult relationship he has with his parents (whose marriage is a rather dysfunctional one) especially his mother, Hope, who has starved her sons of emotional nourishment and empathy, and has taught them, by example, that feelings should be suppressed. Duncan also seems to have a rather low sex drive, and if that isn't bad enough, he doesn't want children - which is difficult for Phoebe to accept, as she has a very healthy attitude towards sex and would like to start a family.
When Nancy Sedgemoor, an old friend of Peter Moon's dies and leaves Peter all her possessions, Peter decides to share the proceeds between Duncan and his other sons, and he encourages them to go to Nancy's flat to take their pick.Read more ›
Communication is the key to this well written and really enjoyable novel.

I loved this story, it kept me wanting to keep turning the pages but not wanting it to end. Great twist at the end. Excellent.Published on 11 Dec. 2013 by maryanne
Light in content and rather slow paced for my taste.
All the men are presented as flawed and the women suffering as a result. I'd have preferred a little less bias.
Very original ending and a plot that keeps you guessing all the way. An absorbing page turner that kept me hookedPublished on 16 Sept. 2013 by greysurfer
Found this book unremittingly dull and plodding. I found all the characters objectionable, apart from the main one who was just, well, dull.Published on 31 Aug. 2013 by Ali Jarman
A really good read. Explores family relationships, how family is entwined. How sons try to be better than their fathersPublished on 17 Aug. 2013 by Debbie
