As the twentieth century draws to a close, a group of people in southern England are also bringing their old ways to an end and establishing new lives. They just don’t know it yet...
Hal Dillon is back at home with Jo and the family, resolved to put his poignant romance with Angela Swayne firmly behind him. But over time, the ripples of his affair extend beyond him to his wife, Jo, their children and Hal’s cousin, Max.
As Jo surveys her crumbling marriage and ponders her earlier widowhood, she thinks again about what she values and needs. Reflective, her dormant wanderlust bursts into life and she sets out to drive up the Great North Road, and on the wild and dramatic Northumberland coast, someone is waiting for her.
Meanwhile, Angela is distracted from her heartache by the arrival of a stranger with a surprising proposition. Barely pausing to think whether or not it’s wise, she finds herself on an unexpected journey and discovers life is about to take a totally unexpected turn, both for her and the man she is with.
Beautifully written with compelling characters and an often humorous narrative, A Slight Folly is the third and final book in Elizabeth Harris’s The Wilderness Series.
