Laughing as they Chased us
Cover from Pocket Books edition, Simon & Schuster UK

a novel about the pain and rewards of facing up to real life

Six people are drawn together during a sun-charged summer in a southern French city. With emotions heightened, misunderstandings and hasty reactions become inevitable and, with such tangled connections, any action holds consequences for them all.

Faced with false hopes, frustrated love, disillusionment and loss, each is compelled to reflect on recent events and to move closer to a deeper understanding of what really matters to them in life.
