Description - The Next Best Thing by Sarah Long

At thirty-five, Jane realises something rather disturbing. She thought she had her life perfectly balanced- working from home as a a freelance translator allows her to keep her financial independence, spend time with her daughter and escape office politics. But somehow, instead of combining a rewarding career with a satisfying mother-daughter relationship, she s become an all-purpose dogsbody, rushing from crisis to crisis and combining missing deadlines with repairing the dishwasher. Rupert is also leading the life he planned- a job in the city, glamorous girlfriend, plenty of money. But he s beginning to have doubts about the dull-but-sensible route he s chosen and to realise it s just possible he wants more out of life. So when he and Jane meet, each escaping their day-to-day life with a stolen afternoon in the peace of the cinema, they both start to wonder whether it's really enough to settle for the next best thing...
