Adam and Rachel are getting married at last. Childhood sweethearts whose lives and families have been intertwined for years; theirs is set to be the wedding of the year. But then Rachel's cousin Ellie makes an unexpected return to the family fold. Beautiful, reckless and troubled, Ellie represents everything that Adam has tried all his life to avoid - and everything that is missing from his world. As the long-awaited wedding approaches, Adam is torn between duty and temptation, security and freedom, and must make a choice that will break either one heart, or many.

"Delightful... Segal's writing is wise, witty and observant." -- Kate Saunders * The Times * " astonishingly accomplished debut which will draw comparisons between Segal and Zadie Smith and Monica Ali." * Stylist * "An impressive debut...the struggle to achieve true adulthood, the loss of innocence and the consequences of adapting to a culture that levies certain expectations on its members, are all cleverly worked into a poised text" -- Elizabeth Buchan * Sunday Times * "A subtle, witty and acutely observed study of a narrow but very recognisable world." * The Observer * "Witty and touching... An assured and audacious debut" -- Michael Arditti * Daily Mail *
