BOOK OF THE YEAR IN 7 NATIONAL NEWSPAPERS ** The Sunday Times bestseller ** BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime **A bittersweet novel of family and self-discovery from the Sunday Times bestselling, award-winning author of A Spool of Blue ThreadWilla Drake can count on one hand the defining moments of her life: when she was eleven and her mother disappeared, being proposed to at twenty-one, the accident that would make her a widow at forty-one.
At each of these moments, Willa ended up on a path laid out for her by others. So when she receives a phone call telling her that her son's ex-girlfriend has been shot and needs her help, she drops everything and flies across the country.
The spur-of-the moment decision to look after this woman - and her nine-year-old daughter, and her dog - will lead Willa into uncharted territory. Surrounded by new and surprising neighbours, she is plunged into the rituals that make a community, and takes pleasure in the most unexpected things.
A bittersweet novel of hope and regret, fulfilment and renewal, Clock Dance brings us the everyday life of a woman who decides it's never too late to change direction, and choose your own path. 'She is and always will be my favourite author' Liane Moriarty
