Separated in every way but distance, Sebastian resides in a guest cottage across the lawn from Ella's ramshackle farmhouse.
When Ella married the handsome, celebrated artist Sebastian Montclair at just nineteen she was madly in love. Now, those blissful years of marriage have turned into the very definition of an unconventional set-up.
With an ex-husband living under her nose and a home crowded by hostile teenaged children, gender-confused chickens - not to mention her hyper critical mother whose own marriage is coming undone - Ella finds comfort in the company of the very charming gardener, Ludo.
Then out of the blue Sebastian decides to move on, catching Ella horribly unaware. How much longer can she hide from what really destroyed her marriage . . . and the secret she continues to keep?
