So she gets a job working as a PA for an extremely handsome military historian named Laurence.

However, after accidently taking three sleeping pills and a double gin and tonic, a lunch date with her boss becomes a disaster. Her husband Marcus enters their London flat to see her kissing her boss!

Marcus asks for a seperation and Hentrietta (or Henny as she is known) stays in the London flat, while Marcus, who runs a successful production company, fends for himself at the village farm.

It's a traumatic time for Henny, dealing with the seperation and getting over the embarrasment with her boss, however she is able to keep her job.

She finds an email from Marcus' horse trainer that showed he had a romantic affair.

In retaliation, she hooks up with her ex-fiance Rupert, and finds her attraction to him stronger than ever. She must choose between Rupert or Marcus.
