Dan and a group of his friends enjoy a Sunday lunch together on a perfect summer’s day. They’re pleased to welcome their glamorous new neighbour and novelist, Ellie, who has rented a house in the village to work on her book. She likes to place herself in the centre of her plots, she says, although it’s hard to see what she’ll find to write about in a quiet country backwater.
As Ellie slots effortlessly into the village social scene, Dan’s wife begins to feel increasingly alienated from her friends and isolated from her family, but, for the life of her, she can’t fathom why…
Ohh .. what a book! You are straight into the thick of it on page one. In walks an unknown lady into a quiet Village life wearing red shoes. That straight always smell of trouble!!
You follow Cass who is a mother of a grown up daughter, A very liked woman in her community. She seems to have it all, the husband, the family, her own little gardening business with plenty of friends around her … an idyllic life. Well, that’s before Ellie walks into the village!
The Author has very cleverly written an extremely gripping novel that is easy to read and one that you won’t want to put down. I found myself on a couple of occasions shouting ‘NO!’ at the words on the pages in front of me! There are some very light elements to it which makes it even more cleverly put together. How can one person have such an effort on people around her!
A brilliant novel and one that I give my highest award of Louise loved….!
