Summary
In the Sixties, Athene Forster is the most glamorous girl of her generation. She is also beautiful, spoilt, and out of control. Two years after her marriage to the steady young heir to the farming estate, the rumors have already begun to circulate about Athene's affair with a young salesman. Thirty-five years on, Suzanna Peacock is struggling with her glamorous mother's legacy. The only place she finds comfort is in her shop, The Peacock Emporium, a coffee shop-cum-curio store, which provides a haven for other misfits in the town. There she makes perhaps the first real friends of her life, including Alejandro, a male midwife, escaping his own ghosts in Argentina. But the spectre of Athene and the shop itself combine to set in place a chain of tragic events, forcing Suzanna to confront the feelings she has disguised for so long-- and her family, in their varying ways, finally to deal with the events of the past. And Suzanna discovers the key to her history, and her happiness, may have been in front of her all along
