If Life Begins at Forty, Charlotte doesn’t feel she’s off to a very good start. As if a recent divorce, a thwarted attempt to move house and a twelve year old son in trouble at school were not enough, the husband of her closest friend Theresa starts to show rather too much interest in her as a newly single woman.
No longer able to blame everything on a floundering marriage, Charlotte is forced to open her eyes and embark on an emotional journey into her past. Only when she has faced some challenging and revealing truths can she finally shed the unhappy skin she’s become so comfortable in, and open up her life – and her heart – to all the promise and possibility that her future holds.
Is life, for Charlotte, about to begin at last…?
