Love, money, children…. Life is a risk, however much we try to protect ourselves….
Tess and Becky are of the generation that reckons it can have everything. High flyers in the high-octane world of London’s high-finance, they move through the opportunities, the short-termists, the sharks, the bullies and the very, very rich to face many choices, not least the one presented by biology: children.
How they and an older generation balance the texture of their lives is offered in a story with universal themes which combines an unexpected love story with a journey to maturity.
