Guerrillas in our Midst
By Claire Peate
Out of stock
Edda is single, twenty-eight and in receipt of the second worst news ever. Her soulmate and best-friend Beth is deserting her for Surrey, for Jack and worst of all for the baby she's expecting all too soon. A final late night adventure brought on by frustration and Cava leads to an invitation to join South London's most secret society - the Brockley Spades.
Suddenly, Edda's life gets a lot more exciting, turning the tables on teary-eyed Beth - now a martyr to her hormones and missing Edda's shoulder to cry on. Edda is filling her Beth-shaped hole with oh-so-gorgeous Guy, dark-haired, artistic and prone to picking her up for illicit forays into starlit horticulture, her knicker-flashing colleague Amanda and new lodger, Robert, oh-so-nice but not very exciting.
A little light weeding in the dead of night shines a new headlamp on the goings on down Brockley High Road. What it reveals is a web of intrigue, riot police, bolt cutters and bashed up bay trees. And a new, more adventurous and independent Edda , mistress of her future and much, much more.
