'Smart, funny and thought-provoking.' Sunday Mirror Everyone who meets her thinks they know Liddy James. A single mother of two, she is one of New York City's top lawyers (with the ruthless reputation and capsule wardrobe to match) and seems to juggle her complicated life with ease.
Her work is all-consuming, her divorce was devastating, her sons are playing up and she's forgotten what more than five hours sleep a night feels like, but still - here she is - on top of the high wire. Until she isn't. When a series of unexpected events culminate in a catastrophic incident on prime time TV, Liddy realises the act is over.
She decides to take some time off with the boys and retrace her family's history in Ireland.
But being marooned in the Celtic countryside is by no means an instant fix, and it is not until Liddy has encountered a stormy neighbour, an unorthodox wedding and a very surprising guest, that she remembers how to be The Real Liddy James.
