Accidents of Love (Paperback) (Barbara Bleiman)
about this item
If only Celia and Nick had not gone to the party that night. If only she had been ill or they had been delayed by one of the children or stuck in London traffic. But they had gone and then, after the party, everything was different. The life that Celia and Nick have built together in North London seems a good one, with two grown-up children and a happy vision of a future surrounded by friends and family, albeit including Celia’s truculent father, Lionel. However, what happens at the party instantly turns her world upside down. Struggling to get her life back on track, she finds herself also having to grapple with an increasingly demanding and forgetful Lionel, who has his own family secrets to share. ACCIDENTS OF LOVE is the deeply affecting story of one woman’s fight to hold on to her family and identity when all touchstones are lost to her. It reveals how small hurts and larger betrayals can cause the kind of suffering that neither age, nor wisdom, nor sheer will, can keep at bay.
