'When two people meet is it need, fantasy or love? Slack-Tide takes us on an urgent journey and kept me reading late into the night.' Esther Freud'By midsummer the thing between us was finished, and it was as if a storm had torn the roof from over me.'It is four years since the loss of a child broke her marriage, and Elizabeth is fiercely protective of her independence.
She meets Robert - exuberant, generous, apparently care-free - and they fall in love with breath-taking speed. Slack-tide tracks the ebbs and flows of the affair: passionate, coercive, intensely sexual.
When you've known lasting love and lost it, what price will you pay to find it again?
