Bright Lights and Promises
With her unique voice and perceptive characterisation, Pauline McLynn has once again created a sparkling novel. Both warm and witty, it is sure to be loved by her confirmed fans, as well as attract new readers. It's not easy being the mother of a twelve-year-old boy who's in love with his babysitter and having trouble at school. Nor are matters helped by the unexpected arrival of an elderly mother who's suddenly footloose and fancy free. There are times when Susie Vine wonders how she'll ever survive. At least she feels secure at Arland & Shaw, London's leading theatrical agency, where her clients love her almost as much as they love themselves. But, as the New Year beckons, Susie feels there's something missing. Then the man who broke her heart comes back into her life and she's forced to ask herself whether she was right to leave him all those years ago. Or is the man for her waiting in the wings elsewhere.?
