Out of the Blue

The champagne corks have barely finished popping in celebration of Faith's fifteen years of wedded bliss with Peter before a small, niggling doubt sets in. On the surface, Faith and Peter have a lot to be thankful for: two teenage children, an enduring partnership and glamorous media careers – he as a publisher, she as a TV weather girl.

But a casual, barbed comment by her bitchy magazine editor friend Lili makes Faith wonder whether her world is as wonderful as it seems on the surface. Is Peter's odd behaviour of late purely the result of stress at work? Is Faith really too smug and trusting?

As the kernel of unease swells and begins to burgeon inside her, Faith finds herself on a quest that leads to a shake-up of everything she holds dear – but which in the end, enables her to reforge her life.
