It's Christmas, and the Birch family is gathering for the first time in years.
Olivia, the eldest daughter, has returned from treating an epidemic abroad and must go into quarentine for seven days. Her mother has decided it's the perfect opportunity to spend some 'sepcial time' together. Her youngest sister wholeheartedly disagrees. Her father isn't allowed an opinion.
When no one can leave the house, seven days for the Birches feels like an eternity.
Especially when they're all harbouring secrets. One of whom is about to come knocking at their door...
'LOVED it! Warm and humane, funny and sad, with a great, twisty plot, Seven Days of Us is absolute pleasure reading from beginning to end. Francesca Hornak is a true talent. Just gorgeous!' Marian Keyes.
'I loved this comic drama . . . the plot is genius . . . and the results are hilarious and touching' Daily Mail.
'Sharply observed by Hornak's satirical eye, this has "Working Title film deal" written all over it' Glamour.
