Opis produktu/serii

The 21st century heir to Jane Austen, Barbara Pym and Elizabeth Taylor, Small Pleasures is both gripping and a huge delight' Amanda Craig, author of The Lie of the Land1957, south-east suburbs of London, Jean Swinney is a feature writer on a local paper, disappointed in love and - on the brink of forty - living a limited existence with her truculent mother: a small life from which there is no likelihood of escape, When a young Swiss woman, Gretchen Tilbury, contacts the paper to claim that her daughter is the result of a virgin birth, it is down to Jean to discover whether she is a miracle or a fraud, But the more Jean investigates, the more her life becomes strangely (and not unpleasantly) intertwined with that of the Tilburys: Gretchen is now a friend, and her quirky and charming daughter Margaret a sort of surrogate child, And Jean doesn't mean to fall in love with Gretchen's husband, Howard, but Howard surprises her with his dry wit, his intelligence and his kindness - and when she does fall, she falls hard, But he is married, and to her friend - who is also the subject of the story she is researching for the newspaper, a story that increasingly seems to be causing dark ripples across all their lives, And yet Jean cannot bring herself to discard the chance of finally having a taste of happiness,,,But there will be a price to pay, and it will be unbearable,
