A laugh-out-loud comedy of country manners
Thirty five year old Fran has an enviable life: her second husband Paul is gorgeous and faithful, she has a job in advertising in London, and a wonderful country home in Leicestershire she has restored with her own hands.
Allie is her oldest and best friend. She is a metropolitan to her core, living in Bloomsbury, working at the same agency as Fran, faithful to no man, but voracious lover of many. Sam is Fran's fresh-faced country friend with a dark secret. She has been the clandestine mistress of a married man for seven years. Surely it's time to move on
