According to their friends, Tom and Pippa Drummond have the perfect existence -- an enviable lifestyle, a happy marriage, and a great kid in Tally. A rare summer holiday is planned - an idyllic retreat in the Italian hills. Tom takes time off from running his restaurant, Pippa leaves her herb garden in the charge of a dotty neighbour and Tally takes a break from the two men in her life. Tuscany is everything they hoped it would be - cicadas in the trees, the scent of sage and citrus and suppers under the stars. But their joy is short-lived. Overnight their lives, their circumstances, their very identities are altered, and life will never be the same again.Titchmarsh, Alan is the author of 'Only Dad' with ISBN 9780708993682 and ISBN 0708993680.
