Growing up is hard to do. Even at twenty two
Landscape photographer Cassandra Chisholm is permanently hard up. She has an absent father in Paris and a not very satisfactory lover in Cornwall. When she agrees to take publicity photos for middle-aged author Michael Niven, the process of growing up begins to accelerate at an alarming rate.
Unrequited love, unwanted revelations about her past, and the frightening prospect of leaving her Cornish home has Cassie arriving at her own personal Turning Point. Aided by her thespian friend Jono, she begins work at a London Arts Centre, until a series of romantic misunderstandings and family disruptions send her bolting around the Home Counties pursued by an irate Michael and her bewildered father. Ultimately it is left to Michaelís own irascible octogenarian father Archie, whose many eccentricities included taking his pet ferret into battle on D-Day and keeping a herd of politically incorrectly named pigs, to finally run Cassie to earth and restore peace and harmony between the warring parties.
More or less.
