Married young and kept at home by twin babies and an invalid mother, and dependent on her husband Trevor’s wages, her life has been limited. But when circumstances change for the better and her husband wants to move away from London, the ground seems to shift beneath her feet.

She is gripped by an inexplicable foreboding.Now in her early thirties, Nell feels cast adrift, far from her friends and all that is familiar. Trevor is no longer the man she married, and their teenage twins, Jonathan and Juliet, are grumpy and difficult. The new house is unwelcoming and needs modernisation and she’s thrust into a continuing chaos of rubble and renovation.

The women she gets to know - Katherine and Felicity - seem frivolous and hedonistic. They wrongly assume that she’s ‘one of them’, someone who will delight in the knowledge that Patrick, one of the builders working on her house, is a notorious womaniser. At first grateful that he doesn’t make a pass at her, Nell begins to feel resentful that Pat finds her unattractive.Nell takes a bar job at the local sports club, but she distances herself from the overheated atmosphere of flirtation and gossip.

She’s not that kind of woman, but....She can’t help being influenced by her new friends’ attitude of casual infidelity. Secretly Nell begins to fantasise about romantic adventures. When she’s pursued by a beautiful and enigmatic young man, whose name she thinks is Angel, she is tempted. Before she can boast about her conquest to another friend, the quirky, new-age Elizabeth, her world falls apart. The presentiment of disaster, felt as a tremor at the start of the story, rumbles into a full blown earthquake, delivering shock after shock. When the dust settles nothing is as it seemed, not even the life she left behind in London.

The unlikely love which has blossomed from the wreckage is doomed and she is forced to confront the hair’s breadth between wishful thinking, self-deception and lies, when shocking truths about friends (old and new), her husband, both her teenage twins and even herself, are exposed.Fly or Fall follows the dismantling of all of Nell’s certainties, her preconceptions and her moral code.

By its conclusion, everything has altered for the ‘woman who dislikes change’, but has Nell been broken or has she transformed herself?
