In the European summer of 2003 a deadly heat wave strikes France. To Mary Moody, living in her rural village in the south-west of France, it seems that the weather is merely imitating the stifling heat of her own relationships. Her marriage, already under strain from the freedoms of her new life in France and the revelation of an affair, now reaches breaking point.
Writing about her life must be a cathartic process for the author, and there is no denying that Moody's honesty makes compelling reading.
