That Certain Age Synopsis

Discover the witty and wonderful story of two unlikely women whose lives are woven together, from the bestselling author of The New Mrs Clifton Barbara and Siena - two women living fifty years apart. Both constrained by choice; one has too little and one has too much. Siena, a 21st century woman, has so far managed to avoid the tick of the biological clock. Without children she can control her own wonderful, ordered life. Only thing is, her husband Charlie longs for a baby . . . In 1959, Barbara has been married to Ryder, an airline pilot, for twenty-four years. Her life happily revolves around her house and family. But when she meets the young and brilliant Alexander, he shows her that she has a mind and a life of her own . . . The intimate, inner lives of two women are intertwined as they struggle to find resolution - between the families they love and their own desires. Praise for Elizabeth Buchan: 'Gorgeously well-written - funny, sad, sophisticated' Independent 'Beautifully observed, with the insight and humour that one has come to expect from the author' Times 'Compelling, compassionate, and aglow with moments of laugh-or-cry humour' Mail on Sunday 'Buchan is a cut above the rest' Sunday Mirror
