    Summary

    Davida Copperfield's life is ideal. Her readers all know it, as do her family, her friends, her acquaintances and her children. In fact she may be the only person who thinks otherwise (well, she and the husband who blackmailed her into marriage in the first place).

    Summary

    Rising author Davida Copperfield always ends up shagging her secondary school frenemy? nemesis? her something, anyway—Uriah Heep at weddings. It's just casual, a one night stand that's got out of hand. Uriah would call it a crime of opportunity. Probably.

    Summary

    Davida Betsey Trotwood Copperfield has an undisciplined heart, and though very well brought up indeed, she is not proof against the temptation to repose foolish confidences where they are not, perhaps, deserved.

    Uriah Heep would have married Agnes Wickfield for financial security and never felt himself emotionally involved by any of it. Mr Wickfield's remarriage to Clara Copperfield ruins that prospect in several ways at once.
