In Sarah Hampton's first novel, Julia touched the hearts of many. Now she returns, older but still engaged with life and those around her. The arrival of a late-in-the-day grandson rejuvenates and enlivens Julia's declining years. Young Harry is as much an iconoclast as his grandmother; her desire to cherish and protect him leads her into conflict with both family and authority. Picking at the Knot is a story of unconditional love across generations. It is also searingly honest about growing old, trying to make sense of the past and still seeking a purpose for the future. Sarah Hampton's first novel, Learning to Tie a Bow, was published in 2012 when she was 83 years old. Critically acclaimed, it was shortlisted for the Lakeland Book of the Year Award.
