The Old House on the Corner
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungVictoria Macara is 27 and lives alone in the old house on the corner. When the land is sold, she finds herself surrounded by a small estate of new properties called Victoria Square. The newcomers who move in around her bring with them their own dramas. The mismatched Kathleen and Steve are lovers with broken marriages behind them; Rachel is attempting to escape from a terrible tragedy; upper-class Sarah arrives with her children after running away from an abusive husband; while Anna and Ernie are just after a quiet life. But it is to Gareth--trapped in a hopeless marriage--that Victoria is particularly drawn. When Rachel decides to hold a barbecue, the scene is set for confrontation, truth-telling, and the revelation of long-held secrets that will touch the lives of all these characters.
