From the bestselling author of Having It All
Maeve is an Oxford law graduate, former television producer and mother of three grown-up children. She started her writing career with the international bestseller, Having It All, which explored the dilemmas of balancing career and motherhood. Maeve has written eight further contemporary novels and two historical novels.Her books have been translated into 26 languages, two which have been shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year. She lives in North London with her husband and a very scruffy Tibetan terrier.
In 1991, Maeve Haran scored a bestseller with Having It All,
one of the first novels to acknowledge the problems of juggling a
career and motherhood. Here she seems likely to strike a similar
chord with the over-60s . . . Haran is far too skilled a
story-teller for the book to read like an exercise in box-ticking.
The characters' own liveliness is reflected in a warm and often
funny page-turner that strikes just the right balance between
melancholy and defiance * James Walton, Readers Digest *
