Friends since university, with busy working lives now behind them, Dido and Georgia have long been looking forward to books and outings, conversation and carefree days. Alas: life is rarely as one wishes it to be, and both find themselves caught up in wholly unexpected domestic drama. Dido, for the first time, has cause to question her marriage; widowed Georgia is certain her husband will return to her. Meanwhile, an eccentric country cousin goes wildly off the rails, children are unhappy in love, and perfect health is all at once in question. Turning to one another should be as natural as breathing, but with so much at stake even this old friendship comes under strain. As hatches are battened down, and silence falls, it takes all their loyalty and humour to recover the easy confiding intimacy of the past

Keeping Secrets is the absorbing story of two very different sisters: of their complex relationships with each other, with the men they love, and with their children. Hilda is clever, purposeful, self contained, a woman whose ordered life is focused on her teaching career, who lives alone and who, until she meets Stephen, a married man, has successfully kept emotion at a distance. In contrast, her younger sister Alice is someone whose feelings have always threatened to overwhelm her. She has always felt in Hilda's shadow, and her uncertainty and insecurity have receded only with the love of her husband, Tony, and the birth of her children. When she discovers that Hilda has decided to have Stephen's child she feels her territory is being invaded, and all her anxieties resurface. But as the birth of her baby draws near, Hilda's own problems emerge. She comes to realise that there are limits to her self-sufficiency, and that her relationship with Stephen is not as perfect as she had though. Meanwhile, Stephen's wife Miriam, physically and emotionally isolated at their house in Norfolk, has kept her own secrets, and made her own discoveries. As the hot summer wears on, the lives of all three women come to a turning point, with a climax which none of them has envisaged. From the author of Spring Will Be Ours, this poignant novel explores the dilemma of the single woman who longs to have a child, and finds no easy solutions

The last guests of the season by Sue Gee( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and German and held by 106 libraries worldwide
In a remote mountain village in northern Portugal, a blue-shattered house in a garden of lemon trees overlooks the village, the valley, the winding river. Here, hundreds of miles from their London homes, two English families have come for a summer holiday. They do not know each other well, these families, although Claire, in university days, once thought she knew shy, self-contained Frances as well as anyone. By chance they have bumped into each other again; on impulse she invites Frances, her husband Oliver and Tom, their six-year-old son, to join her own family in Portugal. Claire and Robert have been here before: they share happy memories with their own children, Jessica and Jack. It soon becomes clear that this year is going to be different. Tom is restless and difficult. Sometimes demanding, sometimes withdrawn, he seems, disturbingly, not quite to belong to either of his parents. Oliver is distant, exasperated. As for Frances - Claire discovers that she had not known her at all at university, that she has an inner life kept secret, until now, from everyone. Shocked and disconcerted, Claire is gradually caught up in an atmosphere of rising tension and distress. Affectionate Jack becomes resentful and cruel; steady, generous Robert is unsettled, hurt by his daughter's withdrawal. Meanwhile Jessica, on the threshold of adolescence, finds herself falling in love. As always, when adults are in turmoil it is the children who suffer. In the intense heat and beauty of this place events move inexorably towards tragedy, and no one sees who is to be the real victim. Sue Gee's haunting and beautifully crafted third novel, The Last Guests of the Season, offers the hope of redemption. It is also, most powerfully, an indictment of a darker side of love

Trio by Sue Gee( Book )
3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Northumberland: the winter of 1937. In a remote moorland cottage, Steven Coulter, a young history teacher, is filled with sadness and longing at the death of his wife. Through a charismatic colleague, Frank Embleton, and Frank's sister, Diana, he is drawn into the beguiling world of a group of musicians, and falls gradually under their spell. But as war approaches a decision is made which calls all their lives quite shockingly into question. Moving between the beauty and isolation of the moors, a hill-town school and a graceful old country house, Trio delicately explores conscience and idealism, romantic love and most painful desire. Throughout it all, the power of music to disturb, uplift and affirm is unforgettably evoked
