The River Street Family
A series of three short novels about the Merryweather family. The series begins in the late 1990s and ends soon after the 2012 London Olympics. It is set in and around a west of England cathedral city.
David has lost his job and his home. And his wife has left him.
A stroke of luck and a chance meeting with his old university friend, Philip offers him a fresh start: a job in a quirky book shop with a flat upstairs and time to play his cello again.
There’s just one problem - Philip is married to Anne, once the love of David’s life.
As he rebuilds his life David meets new people: a down at heel aristocratic couple who run an eccentric school, an unscrupulous journalist and a fiery redhead with a camp but wise hairdresser.
Will they be able to distract David from his love for Anne? Or will temptation be too much for him?
Philip wants to change the world – or at least his corner of it.
He is a man who has everything: a successful business, four lovely children and an enormous house. But his marriage is on the brink of disaster. His wife has fallen for his best friend.
His plan goes well. He rescues his marriage, expands his bookshop, opens an arts centre and starts a housing trust. He offers work and shelter to a young artist and his sister. It is more successful than he had ever dreamt it could be.
But has he been too trusting? Will a visit from the police lead to his ruin?
Who would want to be a twin?
Martin and Hal have grown up hating each other. Now their lives have taken different directions. One has a solid career in medicine. The other has a flamboyant but insecure job as a stuntman.
Their parents would like to see them both settled and happy and the family reunited.
Will it take a tragedy to bring them together?
