Through a disastrous early love affair, Beth is lead to the excitement of the Cheltenham festival, where a chance bet at long odds steers the course of her life towards both love; and ultimately ruin.
Beth finishes her tale, but soon realises that no amount of remembering can prepare her for the reality of seeing George again; or change the fact that the riskiest gamble of all is still to come.....
The Winning Hand is the first book of the Life Beyond trilogy. Beth's journey through her subsequent marriages continues over the following two books, as she draws ever closer to having to make her impossible choice.
