May 2009 Book of the Month.

 

A lovely book full of nostalgia and warmth. Jessie’s story is set in the 1970’s and  finds her coping with a family life that is breaking down around her. In the letters she finds from Edith, a female explorer in the 1930’s we find another life, very different from Jessie’s, but still coping with the same worries and relationship problems. This will make you laugh and cry and laugh a bit more. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Worldwide Adventures In Love Synopsis

'Edith's house interested us from the beginning'

Mysterious and inviting, Jessie and Margaret are drawn to their reclusive neighbour's house. It offers an escape from the dreary summer of 1977 and their fragile family life, into a world they can only dream about. When the house suddenly burns down at the same time as their mother moves out to live with her new boyfriend, and their father develops an unhealthy crush on a woman in their street, life seems bleak for the girls.


Escaping the claustrophobia of family life isn't easy, until the story of an eccentric and beautiful female explorer from the 1930s unfolds in a series of letters. In these letters she tells stories of far-flung places, secrets, doomed love and adventure. Her determination to live life to the full, risking everything cares about, holds untold consequences for all of them.
