Welcome to the Real World

Relationship Stories

LoveReading View on Welcome to the Real World

Shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2007. This is ‘hiding your talent under a bush’ stuff, or being frightened to grab opportunities.  It’s set in the music world and is absolutely charming, a great read to curl up and lose yourself in.  Highly recommended.

Similar this month: Marian Keyes; Cathy Kelly.

Welcome to the Real World Synopsis

Fern Kendal dreams that one day her talent will be `discovered` and that singing in the local pub with her oldest friend Carl will be nothing but a distant memory. There again, in the real world dreams like that never come true. Or do they? When she takes a job as PA to world famous opera singer Evan David, his flamboyant lifestyle, chauffeur-driven limousines and luxurious apartments couldn`t be further from her own world. It`s clear she`s got a lot to learn, but so has Evan – lessons that only Fern can teach him - and, together, maybe their dreams will come true…
