Balancing on Air

Kate Fenton

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Romance

A light-hearted, sparkling novel set in a Yorkshire Dales radio station.

Rose Shawe has a morning programme on BBC Radio Ridings. She also has a great job, a delightful house, a teeming diary, a lovely daughter, a clever lover, and a well-concealed past. Once there was a cabaret artist called Rita Bagshawe who Rose used to know. Not a stripper. Just a singer with a few dodgy friends who enhanced her finale by shedding a few garments. Unfortunately she'd once tossed her garter at a blushing Oxford undergraduate called Thomas Wilkes.

Unfortunately, because sixteen years on, Tom Wilkes is due to arrive in the Yorkshire town where Rose has so beautifully constructed her life - and so carefully buried her past.
