In Her Place

Edel Coffey

Ann devoted years to her mother's care. Now, in a bid to escape her grief and the emptiness of her old flat, Ann finds herself in a bar upstate. She has been so good for so long, she deserves a little fun.

Justin is also grieving, but his wife is still alive. Deborah has been in a coma for a long time and she doesn't have long left. He deserves a little fun, too.

Justin asks Ann to move in just a few weeks after their chance romantic encounter. A million miles away from her lonely life in New York, here Ann finds a home where she is loved and needed by Justin and his little girl, Sophie.

But just as Ann receives the best news, Justin receives the worst. Unexpectedly, Deborah's drug trial has been a success. She is coming home.

Ann doesn't know what to do. All she knows is that she finally likes her life, and she plans to keep it.

Who is the other woman? That's for you to decide.
