Sarah Breswick and Simon Fitzgerald are different. Unwanted, unloved, and suffering from a disfiguring birth defect, Sarah has led a quiet, very sheltered life. At the age of thirty-two, she lives alone in a rundown inherited house in the Midlands of England, and during the week tends to the elderly residents of Crossroads with love and kindness, caring deeply for the frail inhabitants of the place -- an unlikely group of surrogate relatives. Simon has come back to the Midlands after failing to succeed as an actor in London. He is working at the local garage, and trying to convince himself to accept that this is what his future is going to be. No glamour, none of the flash and excitement of London. Just day-in day-out boredom, fixing cars, and the ongoing uncertainty about his sexual identity. But then Sarah's car won't start. The wonderfully good-looking young man at the garage promises to come by the house to fix the car. Neither of them has ever met anyone remotely like the other. And so begins the awkward and touching tale of two unlikely people who manage, against the odds, to make a pair.

Sarah Breswick, born with a harelip & mistreated as a child, has carved out a backwater life for herself and is content if not totally happy. Then she meets free-wheeling Simon Fitzgerald, an openly bisexual man, and they find themselves drawn together. Their relationship proves beneficial to both of them: she gains the confidence to get her final reconstruction surgery and venture out of her cocoon, and he finds a new security and steadiness that allows his acting career to finally take off. This is a "quiet" character driven romance of the old school and lacks the torrid sex scenes that have become so formulaic in today's romances. The author has a deft hand with details and relationships that keeps the reader coming back for more.

This is the story of a woman, born with a hair-lip in London, who lost both parents in World War II. She was shut in a room from birth until she was 7 because of her lip, then went to live with an uncle. The book tells of her life from age 35 until the present, how she learned to love and live a normal life. I especially liked the way the book made me feel that I was reading the words of some one telling me their life story. Nothing seemed contrived, all of the characters actions and decisions seemed real. I enjoyed reading this book and was anxious to keep reading to see how her life turned out.
