About Book

'It was not until the middle of October, with dusk curtaining the hills, that Emma at last arrived at the house she had so oddly inherited.'

So begins the story of a divorcee, approaching middle-age who returns to her childhood home in the Welsh mountains, where an old house has been bequeathed to her by the village doctor. As the reason for the legacy begins to emerge, and the truth of old love affairs is revealed, she enters a relationship of her own. First published in 1995, Touch and Go is a beautifully written evocation of a woman's effort to rebuild her life.
