When Love comes knocking later in the day . . .Newly divorced, and freshly returned to her home town, it's all change for Deborah Peters and her teenage daughter, Martha. Even more so when her plans to rent out the tiny house at the bottom of her garden do not go according to plan.Enter James Redrow, another native of the area, who's just got back from his world travels. A man in his fourties, but with more than a touch of the Peter Pan about him. Not someone who fits Deborah's ideal tenant profile, let alone anything more romantic in nature. But as the pair strike up an easygoing friendship, and start working together on a small business venture, a certain intimacy starts to creep in.Life at 40 is a funny and moving examination of the choices we make in life and our tendency to stick with them long after their usefulness has faded. It's a story about families, property, and the mixed emotions we invest in both of them. It's about mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and the awkward romance that springs up between two fortysomethings as they try to push it away.
