Some Kind of Wonderful

3.46 based on 66 ratings & 7 reviews on Goodreads.com

Rosie's life has become one long string of exhausting worries and stresses, getting her four-year-old daughter Cass to school, getting to work on time, conjuring up 'clever' and 'original' ideas for marketing campaigns. She's only 28, for heaven's sake, so why does she feel 101? And her husband, Darren, is no help, always working late and at weekends.

When Darren announces out of the blue that actually he's been having an affair, Rosie goes into shock. But then she takes a deep breath and decides he's not the only one who can make life-changing decisions. Opting out of Dublin's rat race, Rosie sets up a small gallery in Redwood, a stately home in Wicklow that boasts its own wildlife park. Run by enigmatic entrepreneur, Conor Dunlop and his good-looking son, Rory, every day at Redwood is full of surprises - and some new friends.

Discover great debut fiction and join us for an evening with two of Picador's brightest new writers as Hannah Kohler and Lisa Owens talk about their brilliant and very different debut novels over a glass of Prosecco and a slice or two of pizza. " " " "Hannah Kohler is the author of The Outside Lands, a story of people caught in the slipstream of history. With masterful and deeply imagined storytelling, Kohler takes us from 1960's California to Vietnam at the height of the conflict, focussing on how we struggle in the face of loss to build our world and how easily it can all be swept away. This powerful debut captures what it means to live through historic times and announces her as a remarkable new literary talent. " " " "In Not Working by Lisa Owens, Claire Flannery has quit her job in order to discover her true vocation - only to realize she has no idea how to go about finding it. Whilst everyone around her seems to have their lives entirely under control, Claire finds herself sinking under pressure and wondering where her own fell apart. Funny, sharp, tender and brilliantly observed, Not Working is the story of a life unravelling in minute and spectacular ways, and a novel that voices the questions we've all been asking ourselves but never dared to say out loud. " " " "We are delighted to bring two such talented debut authors to Oswestry for what should be a great event.
