Baker & Taylor
A novel of love, marriage, and village life follows three characters as they move to a small village in Dorset, which changes all of their lives.

McMillan Palgrave
All Jess wants is happiness with her husband Felix, a chance at a new career, and a taste of her sister Louisa's bohemian lifestyle. All Louisa wants is a place to call home. Nobody is sure what Felix wants, let alone Felix himself. But Jess is hoping that their move to a small village in Dorset will revitalize Felix's business, their marriage, and Jess herself.

But when their daughter moves out, Louisa decides to move in, and their lives soon become entangled with their new neighbors. And now that Jess has time on her hands to develop her own interests, she also has time to entertain doubts about her errant husband. Has she been papering over the cracks in their marriage for too long? She's devoted to Felix but hasn't trusted him for years. A house can be transformed, but is it too late to hope that Felix will ever change?

With delicate wit and a flare for capturing the many faces of love, Anna Cheska weaves a thoughtful tale of modern family life.
