Yvonne Carmichael is a highly esteemed geneticist, working at one of the most respected institutions in her field.

Yvonne has always done the right thing in life and only now – presented with an unexpected, unsought opportunity to transgress – does she realise how unrewarded she feels.

Buried somewhere deep is a residual frustration; and though her marriage is full of love and shared history, between her and her husband there are also the usual undercurrents of resentment and complacence, born of many years together.
