Not Working
Lisa Owens

Claire Flannery has quit her job in order to discover her true vocation – only to realise she has no idea how to go about finding it. Whilst everyone around her seems to have their lives entirely under control, Claire find herself floundering 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.

Lover
Anna Raverat

When Kate discovers emails from her husband Adam – aka 'Prince Charming' – to another woman, she takes a long look at her long marriage. And once she starts, she finds all kinds of things she had been doing her level best not to see. 

Told with warmth and lightness, even as it also mines real depths of sorrow, Lover is a novel about the hand that life can deal you, and how to play it with grace.

The Outside Lands
Hannah Kohler

 

Jeannie is nineteen when the world changes, Kip only fourteen. The sudden accident that robs them of their mother leaves them adrift. Jeannie seeks escape in work and later marriage to a man whose social connections propel her into an unfamiliar world of wealth and politics. Meanwhile Kip's descent into a life of petty crime is halted only when he volunteers for the Marines.

The Outside Lands is the story of people caught in the slipstream of history, how we struggle in the face of loss to build our world, and how easily and with sudden violence it can be swept away.
