Rachel is returning to work. And as she discovers, juggling a new job, three children and an ex-husband can feel like drowning. Philip doesn't seem like an obvious lifesaver. He has just lost the one person who ever cared for him and he doesn't know how to live in the real world. But might Philip and Rachel each have something the other needs? This is a story of unexpected friendship; of the messy, muddy territory of those broken by life - and what it takes to fix them. It reminds us that the very darkest of days can be funny, heart-warming and even beautiful.
