Lucy Lovejoy married her childhood sweetheart at 16, but since then she's lost a little more of herself with each passing year. Those looking from the outside think she's like any other wife and mother, but there is no warmth or love at the centre of Lucy's family - her children have watched their father belittle and take from their mother and are, much to her sadness, following in his footsteps. A grandmother, a wife and a mother, with her 40th birthday quickly approaching, Lucy discovers that her good-for-nothing husband is having an affair with her sister. This is a double-betrayal for Lucy and it shatters her. Sitting on a bench one day - she looks back at her life, she doesn't feel like she's done anything with it. So, mustering up all of her courage she decides to leave her family and the home she's devoted so many years to, she decides to go out into the world and start a new life. What will Lucy discover? About the Author: The story of Josephine Cox is as extraordinary as anything in Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.
