Set against a vibrant sixties backdrop, this is the story of two bright young things: Eliza, an ex-deb making a splash in the world of fashion, and Matt, a working-class boy carving out a serious name for himself in property. Their story begins with a love affair, closely followed by a marriage, followed by a baby. But whilst their relationship is at first fuelled by passion, it's not of the enduring kind, and soon what started out with such promise descends into a harrowing divorce case and an epic custody battle. With everything at stake for both Eliza and Matt, and neither party willing to give up their little girl without a fight, it's high drama in the courts. Let battle begin...

The book The decision is the same as More Than You Know
Why would an author write 2 different books the same characters and story line????

Too much coincidence driving the plot. Some anachronisms were present.

I didn't finish this book. Here's why: the characters were completely and totally unlikeable. Matt is a racist, sexist jerk and Eliza's lack of a backbone frustrated me to no end . I couldn't take any more. So I gave up.
