Publisher's Summary

Miranda Meadowe decides a lonely widowhood in her crumbling country house is not for her. Reviving a university dream, she invites five of her oldest friends to come and join her to live, and to stave off the prospect of old age. All have their own reasons for accepting.
To begin with, omens are good. They laugh, dance, drink, and behave badly, as they cling to the heritage they thought was theirs forever: power, health, and stability. They are the baby boomers; the world is theirs to change. But as old attractions resurface alongside new tensions, they discover that the clock can’t be put back.

Enjoyable but not her best

I quite enjoyed this story but it had a suggestion of antiquity which I thought could have been explored more in depth.
