No Small Thing a novel by Veronica Handover

All of a sudden Carla’s life is turned upside down by a secret from her husband’s past. Has their long marriage been broken by betrayal? Is the life they share nothing but a sham?

Watching from the sidelines, desperate for the things she never had, the mysterious Rose must weigh her options and possibly confront the total rejection that is her ultimate fear. Rob, a recently retired architect, pours his energy into the remodelling of his new London house seemingly unaware that the threads of his home life are unravelling around him.

In her much-anticipated debut novel, Veronica Handover lays bare the raw emotion of a family in crisis.


Veronica Handover was born in Egypt, where her father was a successful cotton trader. As a young girl, she moved with her family to Peru, before they ultimately settled in Sudan.

Veronica completed her schooling in England before going on to study Modern Languages at
Cardiff University. Having achieved a Cambridge Certificate of Education, she taught
for a number of years at schools in Swindon where her husband, Richard, was then based.

Veronica went on to set up her own nursery pre-school, which she ran for nine years. During that time she moonlighted as an Ofsted inspector and later became an NVQ assessor in Early Years Education.

Veronica and Richard have three adult children and divide their time between Wiltshire, London, and the Greek island of Zakynthos.
