Ghastly new home. Potentially adulterous husband…. Not quite the fresh start in the country she was promised.

A fixer-upper in the sticks was the last place city girl Ro Skews expected to live. But her husband, Marcus, wants it-and all the arguments are on his side, namely a better life for Tod, their wonderboy, who has developed social problems in London. Of course, the five-year-old has never been the most…conventional child.

While Ro (grudgingly) makes a life for herself in stuffy Chetsley (if you can count suffering the side effects of floor sanding and playing Suburban Lawn Warfare with her sexy neighbor as a life), Marcus starts spending more nights in the city with his cell phone switched off. And Tod, whose fascination with mazes seems to have blossomed into a full-blown obsession, treads the worrying line between eccentric and problematic.

Ro searches for the right path in a few mazes of her own-her marriage, motherhood, country customs-but when she unearths a shattering secret, more than one truth is revealed and Ro is left wondering: Is the country any place to raise a family?
