A brilliant exploration of all the experiences of love available to a woman in her lifetime. Love, again, is the story of Sarah Durham. Widowed for many years, with grown children, Sarah is a writer working in the theatre in London. When she falls in love with twenty-eight-year-old Bill, a seductive young actor, and then with the slightly more mature, thirty-five-year-old Henry, a director, Sarah finds herself in a state of longing and desire thought to be the province of younger women.
