The Smart family’s lacklustre holiday in Norwich is interrupted by a beguiling stranger called Amber. The Smarts try to make sense of their bewildering emotions as Amber tramples over family boundaries and forces them to think in an entirely new way. A novel about how seemingly chance encounters irrevocably transform our understanding of ourselves, “The Accidental” explores the nature of truth, the role of fate and the power of storytelling.
