Russell rises swiftly into a high-powered job until it all comes crashing round him and he now has to spend time at home so there is a slight role reversal while he looks after their 5-year old daughter and his wife rises in her job. He starts his own business and juggles it and child-care very successfully. Then the inevitable occurs. This author once again takes on the gritty side of relationships, here dealing with divorce and all the arising consequences. The five year old daughter initially becomes Russell’s responsibility as the mother flits off. Dad’s new business grows and he has to deal with a terminally ill sister too as the callous mother makes huge demands. This is a tough, yet sensitive, look at the break-up of a marriage and the dangers inherent when a parent becomes selfish and unfeeling, a brave story well told in the author’s familiar fashion. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
