The Hope Fault

Iris’s family – her ex-husband with his new wife and baby; her son, and her best friend’s daughter – gather to pack up their holiday house.

They are there for one last time, one last weekend, and one last party – but in the course of this weekend, their connections will be affirmed, and their frailties and secrets revealed – to the reader at least, if not to each other.

The Hope FaultĀ is a novel about extended family- about steps and exes and fairy godmothers; about parents and partners who are missing, and the people who replace them.
