Beautiful Strangers

Julie Highmore

2 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Julie Highmore's debut, COUNTRY LOVING, was highly acclaimed: 'Pacy and witty, Highmore's take on the country comedy is as fresh, crisp and delicious as a new organic carrot. Extremely promising' Wendy Holden.

The wonderfully entertaining new novel from Julie Highmore.
When Cait joins a singles' week in Oxford and realises that there are far more women than men, she resigns herself to concerts, museums and punting with something of a heavy heart. But a spur-of-the-moment decision takes her and fellow party member, Ralph, to discover a completely different side to the city one in which fortysomething Cait falls hopelessly in lust with a younger man, and Ralph ends up pursued by both the police and a violent drug-dealing gang.

Daniel, not taken with the other singles, goes in search of Cait, and he too is caught up in Oxford's exotic parallel universe, with strange consequences that lead him to an idyllic north Wales smallholding...and maybe the woman of his dreams.
