Publisher's Summary

A classic tale of how a perfectly knitted life can unravel in the space of days.

Alexandra Ludd is an actress playing Nora in Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. In the eyes of the world she has everything a woman could want: husband, home, child, income, good looks, good friends, the plaudits of the crowd and the affection of neighbours. But Alexandra inspires envy as well as love: she was unwise to forget it, she was complacent, perhaps a little vain - and all fate has to do to bring her down is to snip a single strand....

Worst Fears is the story of how bereavement can turn love hollow and truth can destroy a past. It is a headlong, headstrong tale of anger and forgiveness, of worst fears realised but, in the end, best wishes granted.

Critic Reviews

"The literary equivalent of a stiff drink, a dip in the Atlantic in January, a pep talk by a mildly sadistic coach. A snappy whodunnit of the heart." (The New York Times)

"It is unputdownable. I cannot remember a heroine tripping over quite so many banana skins in such a short space of time. Her every tumble is a delight." (Sunday Telegraph
