A Short Story About A Woman Who Couldn’t Be Faithful

Outwardly Eva’s life appears to be almost perfect: a house and garden on the outskirts of Berlin, three children, an arty husband and – a lover. Whilst on holiday in Norway she comes across a painting by Edvard Munch and is thunderstruck by its impact upon her. After this experience Eva will never be the same again ...

True to life, dramatic and lyrical: a book which is fuelled by the curiosity and endless optimism of a woman throws herself body and soul into everything she comes across.

At the same time it is a contemporary novel about a generation of forty-somethings who take life as it comes without letting go of their dreams.
