The Kilburn Social Club is a Premiership team with a difference.
It's a utopian dream whose players are all paid the same and whose money comes from an idealistic, family-run business empire.
Its players are opera singers, academics and Argentinian millionaires, and its captain led Great Britain to World Cup glory.
When her father dies suddenly, Aisling is catapulted from her life as a medical student into the world of high stakes sport and big business - much to her dismay.
She has to protect the club and its values from greedy tycoons and rapacious players, deal with the deadly rivalry of her football-mad sister, and face the fact that the world isn't always how we imagined it would be.
Full of real hopes and proper villains, this is a state-of-the-nation novel about idealism, identity and love.
