Ezra and Sheena Pepin live in Blenheim Orchard in North Oxford with their three children: 14-year-old Blaise, entering the stormy world of adolescence; Hector, 11 and precociously clever; and sweet Louie, three years old and the family tyrant. Ezra, a benignly disaffected employee at Isis Water, has abandoned his calling as an anthropologist; Sheena has inadvertently found hers running a travel company.
They are just like everyone else ¿ over-worked, worried about the children, and trying to keep their marriage on an even keel. And then change comes knocking at their door, and the Pepin family are never quite the same again.
"Tim Pears has a God-given gift for characterisation, a superb sense of place, and a generosity of spirit which is genuinely uplifting." (Time Out)
