'A must read' Sunday Express 'Heartbreaking and hopeful' Woman's Weekly 'A riveting and captivating new novel about the complexities of sibling relations' Grazia 'Raw and hopeful, this book is about what pulls us apart and what keeps us together' Rowan Hisayo Bucahan'One of those books that had me ignoring my phone, family and sensible bedtimes.

Immersive, gorgeously rich and beautifully written. I loved it' Lia LouisA man hit Ava with his car, a few miles from her bungalow.

He brings her flowers in hospital, and offers to do her laundry.

He also brings her the letter she dropped that night on the road. In New York, Ava's brother Michael receives the same letter.

He thinks about it as he steps out of the shower into his curtainless bedroom.

A naked woman stares at him from the apartment across.

They both laugh and cover up with their arms. Brother and sister cannot avoid the letter: their estranged father is dying and wants to meet.

Can they forgive their father, and face each other after all these years apart?

Will new unexpected friends offer the advice and comfort they need?

With sharp wit and sensitivity, Out of Touch is a deeply absorbing story about love and vulnerability, sex and power, and the unbreakable bonds of family.
