'A stunning debut because there is nothing debut about it'
A.M. Homes

Aged 13, Joan Ashby drew up a list of How to Become a Successful Writer:

  1. Do not waste time
  2. Ignore Eleanor Ashby* when she tells me I need friends [*J.A.'s mother]
  3. Read great literature every day
  4. Write every day
  5. Rewrite every day
  6. Avoid crushes and love
  7. Do not entertain any offer of marriage
  8. Never ever have children
  9. Never allow anyone to get in my way

A decade later her short stories take the literary world by storm. But her failure to fulfil numbers 6 and 7 gets in the way, closely followed by number 8 (twice); some years down the road, she finds herself living a life very different from the one she had envisioned.

She finally gets back on track with numbers 4 and 5 and her much-anticipated first novel is finally written and it's a masterpiece, she just knows it. But as she is poised to reclaim the spotlight, a betrayal of Shakespearean proportions is lurking around the corner

An audacious and dazzling novel, epic in scope but intimate in its portrayal of one woman's triumphs and catastrophes.

This masterpiece of historical fiction, centred around the Ashby family, is a testament to the author's ability to weave a compelling narrative. It's no wonder it's considered a top pick among the classics.

For fans of Elizabeth Strout (Lucy by the Sea), Jonathan Coe (Middle England), Sarah Moss (The Fell), Anne Griffin (When All is Said), and Taylor Jenkins Reid (Daisy Jones and The Six).
