Clawr | Cover of In a Foreign Country

In a Foreign Country by Hilary Shepherd

Anne is in Ghana for the first time - her father has been working up country since she was a small child and they no longer really know each other. A few days into her stay, the houseboy Moses returns from a trip and Anne is left with the feeling that she's surplus to requirements. Then something happens that changes everything and Anne is forced to confront her future and her failings in the brutal glare of the African sun.

"Will leave you thinking about the characters after you put it down, and wanting more as you read the last words…[Shepherd's future as an author looks bright]"

Clawr | Cover of Left and Leaving

Left and Leaving by Jo Verity

"Humane and subtle, a keenly observed exploration of the way we live now... " Stephen May, author of Life, Death, Prizes

Photographer Gil is on an extended grey gap-year, working in
the London hospital to which Vivian brings Irene for emergency
treatment; together they try to establish calm amid the chaos.
Irene is thrilled with her 'guardian angels', they less so with her ongoing interest in their lives.

Gil has a girlfriend, living in the same building as him, and a
troublesome family back home. irty-something Vivian has a high-flying boyfriend, an irascible father and a demanding job. But they keep finding reasons to spend time together in the run up to Christmas. And still there is Irene, intent on filling the holes in her life...

Marooned in Tooting by a sudden snowstorm, Vivian and Gil are forced to spend the holiday confronting secrets and responsibilities they've been complacent about for too long.

Honno is a publisher well worth following. It concentrates on the work of women of Welsh descent or connection, a sort of Celtic Virago, and is developing a very impressive modern fiction list. Writers in Oxford Newsletter
