JERRY, a former award-winning adman whoa€™s beginning to leave a trail of ex-wives and semi-estranged children. PEN, his artist ex-wife, whoa€™s a lot more in love with her new garden in the South of France than with her new husband. ISOBEL, their daughter, trapped in air-conditioned Dubai, too busy managing her online farm to raise her own children. CONRAD, her brother, who tends to his bicycles and his latest crush from a grotty flat-share in East London.

But the house has fallen out of use, and so has the family. When Pen decides ita€™s finally time to sell, Jerry discovers some unexpected new occupants who arena€™t so eager to move on. Soon the Manvilles a€“ each of them funny, flawed and sporadically lovable a€“ will have to say goodbye to The House on the Hill.But Conrad had shed stuff until his room contained only a wooden table for his MacBook Air and networked external hard drive; a reclaimed leather swivel chair; a clothes rack ... Was it a badge orablank space? ... He pulled down the window blind, kicked off his Pumas and booted up the computer to check the interwebs.
