The Things We Never Said

Author:

Susan Elliot Wright

Synopsis:

1964: Maggie wakes to find herself in a mental hospital, with no idea who she is or how she got there. Remnants of memories swirl in her mind - a familiar song, a storm, a moment of violence. Slowly she begins to piece together the events which brought her to this point. In the present day, Jonathan is grieving for the loss of his father. A cold, distant man, he was not easy to love, but he was the only father Jonathan knew. Then a detective turns up on Jonathan's doorstep to question him about crimes perpetrated long ago - crimes he believes Jonathan's father committed. As the two stories interweave, a shocking truth, long kept hidden, begins to emerge.

Pillars Of Gold

Author:

Alice Thomas Ellis

Synopsis:

When a body is discovered in the Regents Canal, the local residents vaguely wonder if it might belong to their missing neighbour Barbs, but none of them quite get round to doing anything about it. While Scarlett is preoccupied with her uptight husband Brian and her adolescent daughter Camille, Connie is wondering whether her lover Memet is being unfaithful to her. As the two women gossip and wryly comment on everything from advertising and the press, psychiatrists and school systems to nutrition cranks, lives of both families are turned on their heads as the do-gooder Barbs' whereabouts remain unknown.

The Birds Of The Air

Author:

Alice Thomas Ellis

Synopsis:

Mary felt rather like someone for whom a marriage was being arranged by people who doubted the suitability of the match but could think of no seemly way of retiring. Her family and friends behaved like outsiders privy to a secret and dubious courtship, treating her with wholly unnatural care, whispering together and falling silent when they remembered her sitting by the window and possibly listening. Mary Marsh had lost her only child, but rather than allow her peace in which to grieve, her mother cajoles her into participating in a proper family Christmas. As the various guests arrive - the house descends into farcical chaos.

Ben and Maggie are devastated to discover that their baby daughter, Iris, has become profoundly deaf after being exposed to the measles virus. Their close friends, Isobel and Eric, feel guilty that the virus was passed on by their daughter Gabriella; Isobel had decided years ago not to give the MMR vaccination to her children. Ben blames Isobel for his daughter's deafness, but she is also the woman he fell in love with at university, who eventually married his best friend. Ben decides to sue Isobel and Eric for damages - but is he motivated by a sense of justice for his daughter, or a sense of revenge for past emotional betrayals? In the storm that follows, Isobel's world begins to unravel, and ties of family and friendship are put to the ultimate test...
