Description

This is a collection of stories to suit the reader's every mood - tender, funny, romantic, ironic, bitter-sweet, nostalgic. The couple in Summer Promise are, at first glance, placed in an appalling situation, but nevertheless in the warmth of southern France their relationship develops in an unexpected way. Be Your Age, Dear is a delightful tale of a generation gap which, in one family, seems non-existent - or has it gone into reverse? The Meeting describes the ten-yearly reunion of a group of friends which, for obvious reasons, dwindles each time. The two members most closely involved come to a decision that was, perhaps, inevitable. Model of Beauty is set in a painting class, where the temporary illness of the generously endowed model brings about surprising consequences. These enchanting stories are guaranteed by turn to entertain, soothe, intrigue and touch you.show more
