Josephine's husband, Callum, has failed to deliver on his promise to stop disappearing to far-flung corners of the Earth in pursuit of his various causes so she can have her turn at a career, and they're in the throes of separation. Her daughter, Lydia, is fifteen years old and blames her mother for everything. Josephine can't see how her domestic life can get much worse andmdash; so what does she have to lose by going back to the Bar?
When Josephine's low-flying solicitor's practice is incinerated by a disgruntled client, she is persuaded by her old uni' friend and not-so-secret admirer, Lewis Hughes, to trade the benefits of her brilliant mind for a berth in the lofty glamour of Knox Chambers. With her office destroyed, her marriage collapsing and motherhood fast losing its charm, Josephine decides it's time she took her own aspirations off the back burner and resumed her barrister's robes.
