Fiona Maye is a High Court judge in London presiding over cases in family court. She has a reputation for her sensitive evaluations and well-reasoned judgements. But her life is thrown into turmoil by her husband declaring he intends to embark on an extra-marital affair; and a challenging case involving a beautiful seventeen-year-old boy and who refuses a life-saving blood transfusion because it conflicts with his beliefs as a Jehovah’s Witness. Fiona is forced to face some particularly difficult truths about herself and her values. For those readers familiar with any previous titles: Atonement, Enduring Love and Solar, among others, this one lives up to any expectations. The characteristic beautiful, clear writing style and nuances of human emotion are all present in this wonderful book.
