Ria asked Helen Pollard:

Have you ever been to French countryside? What did inspire you to write Emmy and Rupert's story?

Helen Pollard Hello Ria - Yes, we used to go camping every summer when the children were younger, mainly to Normandy, Brittany or the Loire region, and then later we changed to self-catering in gites. My inspiration for Emmy's story really came in the form of the opening scene - how would someone feel if they caught their boyfriend with an older rather than a younger woman? One of the places we stayed one summer seemed the perfect base for an imaginary setting, and it all just developed from there.
