Georgina was eighteen when she fell in love with Hugh Carter. He was way out of her league but she never loved another man. Now she's thirty-two and he's finally moved in with her. The fact that in the intervening years he married a friend of hers and had two kids is not important.
All seems well until she falls pregnant. Surely a baby will bring them even closer, won't it? But Hugh is turning out to be something of a disappointment and after fourteen years of seeing life through Hugh-tinted lenses, can Georgina really start to make up her own mind?
