* At last, a lesbian novel for the general market. Hailed by Shirley Hazzard as the work of 'one of the best and most invigorating writers - intelligent humane and excellent'.
Christine Snow, a Chicago therapist, has at last returned from the margins of her past - a card-sharp father, too many wrong lovers - into comfortable urban domesticity with Taylor Hayes, a travel photographer. The two women share a house, a dog, a life. And then one morning after a minor argument, Taylor disappears, Chris's anger turns to alarm as time passes and still she hears nothing, until she falls across a clue as unsettling in itself as Taylor's disappearance. Following a trail that leads to Morocco and home again, Seven Moves tracks Chris's gradual realisation that one can never really know another person's soul.
'One of the best and most invigorating writers we have, intelligent as well as clever, feeling, humane and with a wise ear for dialogue. Seven Moves fulfils every promise, it is excellent' - Shirley Hazzard
