Baker & Taylor
Gina and Laurence, friends since childhood, turn to each other for solace when their marriages fail

Blackwell North Amer
Gina and Laurence had been the best of friends ever since they were teens - but never in love. For marriage, they turned to others: Gina to antique dealer Fergus Bedford, who buys elegant High Place for them to live in; Laurence to down-to-earth Hilary, with whose help he turns his shambling inheritance, The Bee House, into both home and small hotel.
When Fergus decides that living with Gina and their daughter, Sophy, is no longer to his liking, it's to The Bee House that Gina flees, beginning a cycle of misery and heartache.
