Laurie is in her late thirties. Earthy, creative, edgy, she lives with two children and shares their care with a father who lives with another man. Her life is full, generous, busy. But their could be more...
Cordelia is older and, by nature and generation, more reserved. Newly widowed, she is pushed by change and grief to reassess her whole life. And to ask crucial questions about what life is for.
Each woman's life is already rich with work, friends, families, interests. Each knows she risks stirring up old patterns, even old wounds. Yet each also offers the other a rare chance to embrace life more fully - savouring the taste of freedom.
