The Debut novel by Suzanne Egerton

Fiona was married far too young, to a man who controlled her every thought. His sudden death leaves a scary vacuum; she is without friends, alienated from her family, and her confidence is in shreds. But a late coming of age in her thirties proves more joyous, funny, alarming and painful than for an adolescent. With the aid of an ebullient mentor, Ellie, she grabs her second chance with both hands, renames herself Fin, and finds herself propelled along pathways she could never have forseen.
Learning to cope with normal social and family contact is challenge enough, let alone facing up to growing evidence that she might, in fact, be gay. But Fin attacks life with all the gusto of one who has missed out on far too much of it, intent on making up for lost time. Thanks to an assortment of new friends she begins to rebuild her battered personality, and strives to heal the rift with her estranged daughter.
At last, her strength and determination seem to have proved her equal to the triumphs and disasters of her new life. And then comes the stalker…

Out Late with Friends and Regrets is the passionate and funny, heartbreaking and joyous story of a woman finally given the opportunity to follow her own path. Fin, fresh out of her cage, gives us a strong, clever and vivacious character to inspire any woman who values her freedom.
