A thoroughly topical tale of scandal and gossip from a new storytelling talent.
A delicious recipe for domestic disaster!
Take one small town where everyone thinks they know everyone else's business. Add three households. Mix in several large dollops of scandal, some secrets and a tragedy. Turn up the heat and bring to the boil. Season with one eccentric old lady and serve with the tabloid press and a big helping of local gossip.

Rosie Wallace was brought up in Milngavie, near Glasgow but has lived on Orkney since her marriage to Jim Wallace, MP for Orkney and Shetland, bringing up their two daughters. She is a speech and language therapist, and since 2003 has been working freelance, specialising in dyslexia. In 2007, her husband stood down from the Scottish Parliament and was appointed to the House of Lords, so she acquired a title which is only used occasionally!
Rosie's interests include cooking, travelling and walking.
