Alice and Ben. A couple like any other. Bound together by love, work, children, familiarity, a shared sense of purpose. Arguing about the usual things too - in-laws, whose career is more important, which of them is a soft touch with the children, who hates change and who craves it. But when Ben takes a step into the unknown, and brings devastation on the family, it forces them to look at everything in a whole new way. Because, as far as they know, this is the end of the line for their family. So what will happen if they get a second chance? Can they - should they - go back to the way they were?
Sinead lives in Dublin with her husband and their three children. The Way We Were is her eleventh novel.
