Two women meet on a long-haul flight and fall in love. But their long-distance relationship needs to span not just the geographical distance, but also the gulf between their very different worlds.

I was about to say that I completely loved the first half of this book, but the second half became harder going, but then I realised that that is the power of Donoghue's writing - the tone of the book completely echoes the rhythms of the love affair, the first part exciting and thrilling and can't wait to see what happens next, then slowly becoming harder work as Jude and Síle begin to recognise the realities of the obstacles in their way. And then in the end... but I won't spoil it ;-)
