The interweaving tale of counsellor Evie Adams and her client Julia Worth, a well-off "lady of leisure," unhappily married to Carl. When Carl suspects Julia of being unfaithful, Julia's relationship becomes emotionally abusive and so her therapy sessions with Evie become an ever-increasing source of strength. Meanwhile, Hilary, a mutual friend of both Carl and Julia, seems to have been involved in a mysterious cover-up of a tragic death at Carl's school. At the same time, Evie has her own issues to deal with. Childless, she discovers that her ex-husband's new partner is pregnant.

Located in England at Exeter's Cathedral Green, Time to Shine is a psychological mystery.
