WHO IS THE ESTATE AGENT?
Claire Cavendish is a London Commercial Lawyer whose lifestyle defines success. But when her sixteen-year-old daughter, Annaliese, is diagnosed with osteosarcoma and her husband, Jeremy, says he wants to begin an affair, wealth and success are poor levees against rising tides of grief, panic and the re-surfacing of past trauma as Claire’s life breaks down.
When Jeremy insists they sell Orchard House, their opulent London home, the stage is set for the advent of Matthew Summers, a young Estate Agent whose own life is profoundly affected by the people who occupy the house he must sell.
The Estate Agent is a story of lives in free-fall when there is nothing left to control. However, it is also a story of courage and the extraordinary beauty of life below the surface that will challenge the most cynical to defend their view that death is the nemesis of life and possibility.
