£7.99 Out of print
'Life is full of surprises and here is one of them: at the age of 43,I have been transformed - from a polite and soft-spoken housewife who would not drown a spider in the bath - to a lucid and dangerous woman.'
This collection of 25 new stories is all about wicked women - but how do you define 'wickedness'
- The wife seeking revenge on the husband who left her?
- The young woman harbouring a deserter?
- The schoolgirls experimenting with magic?
- The biker who chooses hell-raising over HRT?
- The lonely widow looking for a new life?
- The mistress?
- The bad friend?
- The stepmother? . . .
Rebellion, temptation and survival drive this entertaining new volume - including work by Siân James, Jenny Sullivan, Christine Harrison and Jo Hughes - in an anthology by turns harsh, funny, tender and haunting.
'accessible, entertaining and fun to read'
- Patricia Duncker
