The Awkward Age

£8.99

In a Victorian terraced house, in north-west London, two families have united in imperfect harmony. After five years of widowhood, Julia has fallen deeply, unexpectedly in love. James is everything she never knew she wanted – if only her beloved teenaged daughter, Gwen, didn’t hate him so much. At the very least, Gwen could be civil to James’s son, Nathan. Bringing together two households is never easy, but Gwen’s struggle for independence will test her mother’s loyalty, and her unexpected actions will threaten this fragile new happiness. ‘The Awkward Age’ is about the new family; about starting over, about the attempt to build something beautiful amid the mess and complexity of what came before.
