Remarkable Things

by: Deirdre Palmer

***Shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Joan Hessayon New Writers’ Scheme Award 2016***

When Gus Albourne finds himself as sole inheritor of Aunt Augusta’s cottage in the Sussex village of Hangburton, he has more than just a property on his hands. Why him and not Robert, his more deserving brother? Gus needs answers. As he searches for the truth behind the legacy, the cottage begins to reveal its secrets and Gus realises he’s looking at his own life story. Only it’s not the version he knows.

Millie Hope is searching for her missing daughter, Karen. When Millie’s ex-husband dies, finding Karen becomes even more urgent. But there’s more than one barrier to the search. For a start, there’s Jack, Karen’s terrifying ex-boyfriend. And then there’s the reason Karen disappeared in the first place, which seems less certain as time goes on.

Friendship between Gus and Millie deepens into something more as they share confidences over endless cups of tea in the back room of Millie’s shop. But how can they begin to think about the future when the past is clamouring to be rewritten?

Meet the Author

United Kingdom
Deirdre lives in Brighton, on the south coast of England, the town where she was born.   Brighton and the surrounding Sussex countryside are a great source of inspiration for her novels. At the age of nine, having learned the word ‘author’ and liking the sound of it, she banged out Enid Blyton rip-offs on an old typewriter.  The writerly ambition went into hibernation after that, but it was always there, through life in general and a career in university administration, at which point it emerged pretty much unscathed and clamouring for attention. Deirdre is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, having ‘graduated’ from the association’s New Writers’ Scheme on publication of her first novel, Remarkable Things. She was twice a major prize-winner in the Mail on Sunday Novel Competition.  As well as novels, she enjoys writing short stories and is published by D C Thomson in The People’s Friend magazine.
