This is Linda’s story. She’s lucky. She knows that. It’s what makes being unhappy even worse. Her friends advise taking medication, but Linda wants to feel more, not less. A meeting with a politician, and ex-boyfriend, reawakens a side of her that she – respectable wife, devoted mother and ambitious journalist – thought had disappeared. She embarks on a relationship that is addictive, dangerous and undeniably exciting. But the consequences are far-reaching.
