When young English teacher Diana Benton starts her new job at an exclusive Scottish school, she is confronted with the rebellious American Sam Stevenson. Both gifted and both stubborn, the two personalities soon clash in the classroom, but why does Sam's antagonism affect Diana so deeply? As a war of words spirals into a forbidden and passionate love, Sam and Diana are forced to examine their own identities in the hostile climate of 1960s Britain. But even they cannot imagine the trials that lie ahead. This is a story of love, anguish and alienation.
"Great news for those of you who enjoyed the film Loving Annabelle, well worth a look" - Pink Paper
At twenty-one Jordache Catherine Alexander is unsure of her sexuality.
At twenty-nine Jordache is beautiful and successful but is bitter and still mouning the death of her lover, Mell. She agrees to go to Devon to a small secluded hotel for a poetry and painting course.
Also on the course is Frances Ledger, forty-seven, a talented artist and devout Roman Catholic. From an abrasive first meeting a tentative friendship develops, but Frances has problems she cannot share.
Born in the Shetland islands to a peculiar and distant father, Allison Peterson has had a great deal to contend with in her life. At a very young age, she was forced to come to terms with her sexuality, a task not made easier by her belief that she was entirely alone in her attraction to other women; in later years, she found herself working in psychiatry whilst herself struggling with alcoholism.
In this candid, sometimes funny and often moving memoir, Allison takes the reader through her strange and difficult life: through love and addiction, through spiritual struggles and, finally, to hope.
