Darby and Michael are thirty-somethings on the brink of greatness in their fields. Dead-set on avoiding marriage, children, and other attachments, they strike up an arrangement: unattached companionship, toe-curling sex and a clean break when it inevitably ends.
And it does end. Michael is transferred. Darby is offered her dream job. It is only when they are separated that the real story emerges, one that explores what epic love looks like between two people who choose to be apart.
Deeply meaningful, desperately sexual and inevitably bittersweet, Snapdragon grapples with the quandary of choosing love over career, the weight of adulthood and the complexity of modern work-life. It reimagines what a 21st century relationship should look like and keeps the reader wondering how it will end.
