Sue Lilleyabout this book: HIGH HOPES is an emotional page-turner. The visual style and short chapters are perfect for commuting and coffee-breaks and just the thing for a lazy holiday read. You'll be drawn into the lives of Grace, Sam and Dixie who think they know everything about each other.
But Grace has a secret. Years ago, she got pregnant after a drunken one-night stand with Sam. A penniless student with no family to support her, she convinced herself it was best for everyone if she gave up her baby for adoption. Now, after years of guilt and a disastrous marriage, she's approaching forty with a sense of failure and dread when she receives a letter out of the blue.
Her daughter has traced her and wants to meet. More than anything, Grace wants to see her, to explain that what she did was an act of love. But how can she do that without confessing to Sam and putting his family in jeopardy? How could their lifelong friendship survive such a betrayal? Yet Grace has no choice.
She visits their home in Cornwall to break the news in person. But Dixie and Sam are caught up in their own dilemmas. Distracted by Danny, a sexy odd-job man, Grace finds it ever more impossible to say anything as the week edges towards her dreaded milestone birthday.
Discover what happens next in this engrossing saga. The perfect novel if you don't mind being late for work.
