Have you ever loved someone enough to die for them? Or even kill for them?
Ellen Millar is an independent soul. An actress whose star is in the ascendant, she also has a partially decorated flat, a mountain of debt and some seriously good friends to sustain her. Into the equation of her life comes Aedan. An Irishman. Their attraction is instant; their affair intense and all-consuming. This five-day courtship is the prelude to a life together, until Aedan returns to Ireland and realises that some emotional entanglements are impossible to untie.
Jane Slavin conveys the agony of a broken heart and a restless mind with shocking clarity. In Ellen Millar, she has created a candid, witty and uncompromising narrator whose addiction to one man takes her close to madness.

An Exceptional Must-read
This was written and read, by the author- I do not think anyone could have given it anywhere near the performance that the author did.
This was a funny, moving, insightful and tense story. One of the very best books I have ever listened to.
