The Next Best Thing Paperback

Description

At thirty-five, Jane realises something rather disturbing.

But somehow, instead of combining a rewarding career with a satisfying mother-daughter relationship, she's become an all-purpose dogsbody, rushing from crisis to crisis and combining missing deadlines with repairing the dishwasher.

Rupert is also leading the life he planned: a job in the city, glamorous girlfriend, plenty of money.

But he's beginning to have doubts about the dull-but-sensible route he's chosen - and to realise it's just possible he wants more out of life.

So when he and Jane meet, each escaping their day-to-day life with a stolen afternoon in the peace of the cinema, they both start to wonder whether it's really enough to settle for the next best thing ...
