Love in the Limelight
In the London of the eighteenth century, Drury Lane is at the heart of England’s theatrical life. New writers and managers strive to entertain theatregoers, while actors – and more recently actresses – compete for celebrity status and the public’s affection.
Into this sophisticated and cutthroat world comes Eliza Grahame, a pretty young girl from the slums, whose private life becomes as fascinating as the plays in which she performs.
Caught in the conflict between love and ambition, Eliza must decide which role to choose.
"Love in the Limelight had me hooked from the opening pages. An unusual and fascinating novel which I thoroughly enjoyed."
Diary of an Almost Baby Boomer
Born in the same year as Goldie Hawn and Eric Clapton, Stella Hart - amateur wordsmith, book group devotee and inveterate watcher of property porn - may have led a less eventful life but she's had her moments, most of which have been recorded in the her diaries over the years. Even now, the year of the The Big Birthday, the entries continue, whether to chronicle her running battle with service providers, entanglements with exes or fall out with family. And just when she thinks romance is over, she's in for a shock.
Follow this landmark year in Stella's life which is often chaotic, sometimes difficult but always described with warmth and humour.
