Second Honeymoon

Ben is, at last, leaving home. At twenty-two, he's the youngest of the family. His mother, Edie, an actress, is distraught. His father, Russell, a theatrical agent, is rather hoping to get his wife back. His brother, Matthew, is struggling in a relationship in which he achieves and earns less than his girlfriend. And his sister, Rosa, is wrestling with debt and the end of a turbulent love affair.

Meet the Boyd family and the empty nest, twenty-first-century style.

“The author's witty manipulation of her characters recalls the other Trollope, although there is nothing Victorian about her style... perfectly pitched dialogue”

- The Times

“One of the finest chroniclers of the way we live now”

- Independent on Sunday

“Trollope has perfectly caught the angst of the empty nest... the ebb and flow of relationships is brilliantly handled”

- The Observer
