Vanessa and Gerald first fall in love in the sixties when she is an art student and he a sculptor. As her tutor, he is a charismatic figure in the young Vanessa’s eyes. Their relationship is passionate, thrilling, sexy. They marry and Vanessa pictures them as the glamorous couple of the art world. Reality is different. They have children and Gerald’s personality and artistic talent soon eclipse Vanessa’s. He belittles her early attempts at fashion design. Eventually he leaves.

Suppressing her heartbreak, Vanessa makes a new life for herself with Andrew and her children. Her design business thrives. However, Gerald can’t stay away, and Vanessa finds herself captivated by his magic all over again. He insists she belongs with him and must leave Andrew, so triggering a tragic chain of events that comes to dominate their lives.

Haunted by grief and remorse, Vanessa rejects Gerald, but she never stops loving him. When they are finally reunited, years later, and find the chemistry between them is as strong as ever, they have to come to terms with their past and accept the power of their enduring love.

Unravelling explores the complexity and contradictions of love and sexual attraction: their power to generate both passion and heartbreak; to cause delight and despair; to drive us to betrayal and lead us to redemption. Unravelling is a story that engages both the heart and the mind.
