When Kate was twenty-two, she had an intense and passionate affair with a married man, Callum, which ended in heartbreak. Kate thought she’d never get over it. 

Seventeen years later, life has moved on – Kate, now a successful actress, is living in London, married to Matt and mother to little Tallulah. Meanwhile Callum and his wife Belinda are happy together, living in Edinburgh and watching their kids grow up. The past, it would seem, is well and truly behind them all.

But then Kate meets Callum again.

And they are faced with a choice: to walk away from each other or to risk finding out what might have been.

‘Ruth Jones is excellent on human nature and why we make the mistakes we do. I felt for every character. Unputdownable.’ Jojo Moyes

Reviews

Kept me gripped from the beginning.

Jane Fallon

I felt for every character. Unputdownable. 

Jojo Moyes

Never Greener is not intended to be a funny book. Rather it pulls on Jones’s other strength: writing strong and identifiable characters that pull you into their lives from the first pages.

Emer McLysaght
The Irish Times

Thought-provoking, compelling and ultimately redemptive, Never Greener is a captivating modern morality tale.

Charlotte Heathcote
Express

Never Greener is a thrilling novel about the complexity of life and relationships.
