This is my take on ‘the stranger in town’. When a ladies’ luncheon club lands an A-list celebrity, Sir Anthony Chance, as speaker for their anniversary bash the members have no idea of the upheavals that lie ahead. Deceptions are exposed, confidences breached, friendships and marriages are tested – nothing, in short, will be the same.
And not just for them. Sir Anthony, too, realises that there are possibilities for happiness outside the rarefied zone of the rich and famous.
I felt I was among friends writing this novel – as I hope you will when you read it.
