Turbulence by Maggie Rainey-Smith
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Adam is fortyish, coasting along and relatively content while his glamorous partner, Louise, takes centre stage. But half a lifetime ago, his aspirations were higher and he was certain about the future he'd share with Judy. When an unexpected invitation arrives, uncomfortable truths resurface and the secrets of the past spill out. How will Adam manage to attend a reunion in the company of both Louise and Judy - not to mention stepfatherhood and a state of siege at work? Punctuated by a sense of loss, Turbulence is a wryly funny look at life's promises and pitfalls.
