Queenie Malone's Paradise Hotel Tilly was a bright; outgoing little girl who liked playing with ghosts and matches. She loved fizzy drinks; swear words; fish fingers and Catholic churches; but most of all she loved living in Brighton in Queenie Malone's magnificent Paradise Hotel with its endearing and loving family of misfits. But Tilly's childhood was shattered when her mother sent her away from the only home she'd ever loved to boarding school with little explanation and no warning. Now an adult; Tilda has grown into an independent woman still damaged by her mother's unaccountable cruelty. Wary of people; her only friend is her dog; Eli. But when her mother dies; Tilda returns to Brighton and with the help of her beloved Queenie sets about unravelling the mystery of her exile from The Paradise Hotel; only to discover that her mother was not the woman she thought she knew at all ...
The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes
Once a spirited; independent woman with a rebellious streak; Masha's life has been forever changed by a tragic event twelve years ago. Unable to let go of her grief; she finds comfort in her faithful canine companion Haizum; and peace in the quiet lanes of her town's lido. Then a chance encounter with two extraordinary women - the fabulous and wise Kitty Muriel; a convent girl turned magician's wife turned seventy-something roller disco fanatic; and the mysterious Sally Red Shoes; a bag lady with a prodigious voice - opens up a new world of possibilities; and the chance to start living again. But just as Masha dares to imagine the future; her past comes roaring back ... Like her bestselling debut; The Keeper of Lost Things; The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes introduces a cast of wonderful characters; both ordinary and charmingly eccentric; who lead us through a moving exploration of the joy of friendship and the simple human connections that make life worth living.
