Sybil works at the Royal Institute of Prehistorical Studies, a venerable organisation at risk of closure. When the assertive and glamorous Helen Hansen is appointed as the new Head of Trustees, Sybil is dismayed – they are old adversaries. Then Helen seduces Sybil’s boyfriend. Betrayed and broken-hearted, Sybil becomes obsessed with exposing Helen as a fraud. Offbeat and darkly funny, The Snow and the Works on the Northern Line is about things lost and found. It is also a story about love, grief and forgiveness: letting go and moving on.
