A compelling and beautifully written new novel from the acclaimed Tessa Hadley- a remarkable portrayal of a man and woman whose lives collide on the Cardiff to London train. The day after his mother dies, Paul learns that his eldest daughter Pia has gone missing. He sets out from Wales in search of her, and when he eventually finds her, living with her lover in a chaotic flat in King's Cross, he thinks at first he wants to rescue her. But instead he finds himself drawn closer to the hub of London, to the excitements of a life lived in jeopardy, to Pia's fragile new family. In the opposite direction, Cora is moving back to Cardiff, to the house she has inherited from her parents. She is escaping her marriage, and the constrictions and disappointments of her life in London. At work in the local library, she is interrupted by a telephone call from her sister-in-law and best friend, to say that her husband has disappeared. Connecting both stories is the London train, and a chance meeting that will have immediate and far-reaching consequences for both Paul and for Cora.
