Synopsis

Women of a Dangerous Age by Fanny Blake

Can you ever truly escape from the mistakes of the past? Lou is married to a man who no longer loves her. It's time to move on, to begin a new business venture and to start her life over. To celebrate her new-found freedom, she travels to India, where, in front of the Taj Mahal, she befriends Ali after taking each other's photographs on 'that' bench. Ali is a serial mistress. But when she returns home, she discovers her latest lover is not the man she took him for. She too needs a new beginning. As Lou and Ali put their pasts behind them, they start to discover new possibilities for life and for love, until the shocking realisation that they have far more in common than they thought. Will their new knowledge derail their friendship and ruin their lives yet again? Or will they be able to overcome their past to forge their separate futures?
