Synopsis

Chances by Freya North

The stunning new summer besteller from Freya North. Vita's nursing a broken heart.Oliver's heart belongs to the past.They should be perfect for each other.But will they chance it? Vita's gift shop would do better if she ran it as a business, not as somewhere to daydream. But she's not one to tell herself off: she leaves that to Tim, her ex. Active and outdoorsy Oliver runs his tree-surgery business as calmly as his home - but his love life is intensely private. When Vita and Oliver's paths cross at a pear tree, there's a chance of something blossoming. As spring turns into summer, both Vita and Oliver are given choices and chances. But will they take them - or walk away?

About the Author

Freya North

Freya North was our Guest Editor in June 2014 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Freya North was born in London but lives in rural Hertfordshire with her family and other animals, where she writes from a stable in her back garden. A passionate reader since childhood, Freya was originally inspired by Mary Wesley, Rose Tremain and Barbara Trapido – fiction with strong female leads and original, sometimes eccentric, characters.

In 2012 she set up, and now runs, the Hertford Children’s Book Festival. She is also a judge for the CPRE Rural Living Awards, and also an ambassador for the charity Beating Bowel Cancer. She is the author of 13 bestselling novels which have been translated into many languages.
