Nell is content with her life until she falls in love. From the moment she sees Bottom Cottage, deep in a west country valley, she knows she has to have it. But things become more complicated when she meets its owner, Rob, and falls for him as well. All her dreams seem to have come true, but there are disturbing undercurrents beneath the surface. Rob has two young children and an almost-ex wife, and as Nell struggles with her new role as stepmother she finds herself trapped by conflicting interests and undermined by uncertainty. Does Rob really want her, or are all his feelings for his children and the cottage? Did she fall in love with Rob because of his house, or do they have a genuine future together?

Maggie Makepeace came to writing late in life, having begun her career as a zoologist. She had a number of jobs in scientific research and Wildlife Trusts, the most rewarding of which was a 3-year contract on a Scottish estuary studying the social behaviour of shelducks. For a brief time in the 70s she was a television presenter for Yorkshire TV and London Weekend, and gradually became more interested in the psychology of human behaviour, especially communication - or the lack of it - and in the way that some people attempt to control the lives of others.
