Helen Cooper has a charmed life. She’s beautiful, accomplished, organised – the star parent at the school. Until she disappears.

But Helen wasn’t abducted or murdered. She’s chosen to walk away, abandoning her family, husband Sam, and her home.

Where has Helen gone, and why? What has driven her from her seemingly perfect life? What is she looking for? Sam is tormented by these questions, and gradually begins to lose his grip on work and his family life.

He sees Helen everywhere in the faces of strangers. He’s losing control.

But then one day, it really is Helen’s face he sees…

REVIEWS

A wistful, poignant novel.Sarah Naughton, author of TATTLE TALE

In After Isabella, Fiore has created a compelling and provocative read, nicely paced and thoroughly absorbing. At times, both heart-warming and poignant, it's impossible not to feel a sense of loss on turning the final page.
Irish Independent

A beautiful, heartfelt novel that swept me up and held me tight until the end. I was lost in this powerful, poignant tale.Amanda Prowse on AFTER ISABELLA

A heartfelt novel about how messy life is, and how relationships and families change over time. Both heartwarming and sad, it's an insightful, thought-provoking glimpse into female friendships, love and loyalty.Julie Cohen on AFTER ISABELLA

After Isabella is a beautiful, absorbing novel that deals with the issues at the very heart of what it means to be a woman. I was drawn in from the very first page and loved the way Rosie handled both the harsh realities, and the beauty, of the friendships and family relationships that define us. I can't wait to read more from her!Tracy Buchanan

Heartwarming and beautifully written, it's a story of crossroads and choices, friendship and family.
