Synopsis

When Dorothy came back from the dead, it seemed to Aaron that some people simply didn't notice.

The accident that killed Dorothy - involving an oak tree, a sun porch and some elusive biscuits - leaves Aaron bereft and the house a wreck. As those around him fuss and flap and bring him casserole after casserole, Aaron ploughs on. But then Dorothy starts to materialise in the oddest places. At first, she only comes for a short while, leaving Aaron longing for more. Gradually she stays for longer, and as they talk, they also bicker and the cracks that were present in their perfectly ordinary marriage start to reappear...

'One of my favourite authors' Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies

'My favourite writer, and the best line-and-length novelist in the world' Nick Hornby
