Just the Two of Us

Just the Two of Us

What if the person you least want to be locked down with . . . is the one you married?

Julie and Michael Marshall have been married for thirty-four years. They’ve stayed together through thick and thin, through better and worse – and, for the last few years, it has mostly been worse.

As their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary approaches, Julie realises something: she doesn’t want to pretend anymore. Divorce papers at the ready, she’s just about to have The Talk with Michael when everything changes.

Lockdown begins and Julie and Michael face the greatest terror they can imagine: uninterrupted time with one another.

But, when stripped of all distraction and forced to meet eyes across the dinner table, could it be that Julie and Michael might find a way back to where they first began?
