'What could be nicer than living in the country?' Lucy Fellowes is in a bind. She's a widow living in a pokey London flat with two small boys and an erratic income. But when her mother-in-law offers her a converted barn on the family's estate - she knows it's a brilliant opportunity for her and the kids. But there's a problem. The estate is a shrine to Lucy's dead husband Ned. The whole family has been unable to get over his death. If she's honest the whole family is far from normal. And if Lucy is to accept this offer she'll be putting herself completely in their incapable hands. Which leads to Lucy's other problem. Charlie - the only man since Ned who she's had any feelings for - lives nearby. The problem? He's already married...Step into Alliott country with A Married Man.
