Synopsis

A sensual, wonderfully engaging debut about a woman’s passionate affair with her father’s protégé, a poet.

David Freeman, the charismatic and renowned director of the Broughton Poetry Foundation, has always been more interested in his work than his family, and his daughter Katherine feels the wound of his neglect. Having abandoned her creative life as a dancer, muffled by motherhood and a conventional marriage, she embarks on an intense affair with a poet, one of her father’s protégés. As she falls in love and her marriage starts to come apart, she begins to question the depth of the romance. Her emotional journey leads her back to the north of England where she was brought up, to her father, and to her younger self, the passionate dancer.

Powerful, wise, and beautifully written, The Whole Wide Beauty is an unforgettable debut novel about searching for fulfillment in love, art, and life.
