'Thank goodness for Katie Fforde, the perfect author to bring comfort in difficult times. She really is the queen of uplifting, feel good romance.' AJ PEARCE
Romance, friendship, joy and the possibility of happy endings: the heartwarming new novel by #1 bestseller, Katie Fforde.
Lizzie has just arrived in London, determined to make the best of her new life.
Her mother may be keen that she should have a nice wedding in the country to a Suitable Man chosen by her, and Lizzie may be going to cookery school to help her become a Good Wife...
...but she definitely wants to have some fun first.
It's 1963 and London is beginning to swing as Lizzie cuts her hair, buys a new dress with a fashionably short hemline, and moves in with two of her best friends, one of whom lives in a grand but rundown house in Belgravia which has plenty of room for a lodger.
Soon Lizzie's life is so exciting that she has forgotten all about her mother's marriage plans for her.
All she can think about is that the young man she is falling in love with appears to be engaged to someone else...
'Katie's books are so full of warmth and charm and I always hear her voice telling me the story. She is the absolute queen of feel-good escapism with lovely, quirky characters and an ahhhh factor at the end. Reading a Katie Fforde is like getting in a lovely hot bath with scented oils and relaxing salt.' JANE WENHAM-JONES
