Angeline Gower, ex-bellydancer, ex-biker, single mother of a little girl who is not actually her child, is mired in problems again in this wonderful sequel. Her relationship with Harry, the lover turned cop, remains fraught, the lure of the glamorous but no good Eddie hasn't gone away. And there is yet another element complicating things know - the seductive and mysterious Sa'id. With Angeline older and a little wiser, Louisa Young weaves a tale that is richer, sexier and more moving than 'Baby Love', while remaining just as exciting. Shifting between Shepherd's Bush and Cairo, full of the contrasts between the West and the Middle East, 'Desiring Cairo' thrills and enthralls while at the same time making us think and feel deeply about the love between mother and child, man and woman, friend and friend

Angeline Gower is back home in Britain, back safe, back in her own bath. And, right on cue, that's when trouble arrives, back for another bout with her. But this time she's going to see it off for good ... There's trouble in the form of her nemesis, her Russian roulette - wiseguy wideboy Eddie: he's on the loose again, and who would the police send out to Egypt to trace him if not Evangeline? Then there's trouble of another more painful, more joyful sort altogether: the trouble she has choosing between safe, solid, sensitive Harry, and hot, haughty, harmonious Sa'id. So, out among the sensuous wonders of Luxor, on the mobile and on the hoof, our angel shimmies and swerves with all her ex-belly dancer's supple style through a series of emotional chicanes. Now and again, in a particularly tight corner, she spins off, but she always regains control and surges forward to seize the life and future she deserves for those she loves and, triumphantly, for herself

Devotion by Louisa Young( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louisa Young's Devotion is a novel of family, love, race and politics set during the electric change of the 1930s. Tom loves Nenna. Nenna loves her father. Her father loves Mussolini. Ideals and convictions are not always so clear in the murky years between the end of the First World War and the beginning of the Second. For Tom and Kitty Locke, children of the damaged WW1 generation, visiting their cousin Nenna in Rome is a pure joy. For their adoptive parents Nadine and Riley, though, the ground is still shifting underfoot. Nobody knew in 1919 that the children they were bearing would be just ripe for the next war in 1939; nobody knew, in 1935, the implications of an Italian Jewish family supporting Mussolini. Meanwhile Peter Locke and Mabel Zachary have found each other again together in London, itself a city reborn but riddled with its own intolerances. As the heat rises across Europe, voices grow louder and everyone must brace once more to decide what should bring them together, and what must drive them apart
