(From the publisher):
Emmy, Niall, Sita, and Jonathan miss their train back to London from a Somerset wedding, escaping Britain's worst rail crash in sixty years. Upon reflection on their mortality, the friends reevaluate their lives and come to a decision. They will all, along with Emmy's daughter, Lila, Niall's girlfriend, Kat, and Sita and Jonathan's children, Jay and Asha, move into the ramshackle manor house Emmy recently inherited in Cornwall. In the idyllic setting, they hope to simplify their lives.
As renovation of the house begins, a closely guarded secret is about to be uncovered. The bricks and mortar of the group's long friendship start to crumble. It soon becomes clear that fresh starts have little to do with geography, and the four of them realize that an escape to the country doesn't mean an escape from life's problems. As choices are made and the truth comes out, will they be able to hold their friendships together?
