A Private Affair by Lesley Lokko
Sam, the ugly duckling who grew into a swan. Now beautiful and wealthy, with a glittering career, no one can understand why she's still on her own. When she meets a handsome stranger on holiday, things finally seem to be falling into place...Meaghan, a true survivor. The teenage runaway who worked her way off the streets, she was swept off her feet by a young army officer, to live on the other side of the world, finally escaping the family she loathed...Dani, the beautiful misfit, desperately looking for daddy in all the wrong places, and finding instead a man who will teach her everything that is wrong and corrupt about love. And Abby, the model wife, everything her husband and family could want and more, but never being herself. Until a dark secret threatens to pull her well-ordered life apart.
I love Lesley Lokko's books. The sweeping landscapes, the multifaceted characters, and the fascinating storylines are completely captivating, and A Private Affair kept up the tradition. --Chick Lit Central

Lesley Lokko’s most recent novel, One Secret Summer, has just been released in paperback and her next, A Private Affair, is due out this summer. After spending seven years training to be an architect, she promptly threw in the towel and began writing fiction instead. Lesley now splits her time between London, Accra and Johannesburg, with the odd winter spent writing in cottage just outside Edinburgh. Her Scottish friends think she’s mad.
