Maggie Makepeace came to writing late in life, having begun her career as a zoologist. This is about his near death experiences. Perhaps therefore it was dangerous to embark on a holiday with a group of strangers? But it didn't stop her longing for her freedom. In his search for the 'perfect' wife, Hector complicates the lives of four very different women; Jess the repressed photographer, Wendy the fluffy doormat, Caroline the career executive, and Zillah the bohemian. Juliet has a message for her family but Muffet has a reason for not wanting to hear it. He is wounded by a Killer Whale, gets beached, and escapes from whaling ships. As powerful a piece of writing as you are likely to read this year.

But she hadn't bargained on the stifling effect on her husband of his alarming family, nor the many ways in which the family would contrive to exclude her from their affluent but hollow lives. Paul is a young man from the Prairies. Let go from his job, he finds in a newspaper ad the chance to rebuild his life with an unwanted orchard; but does he know anything about orchards, and will his wife Lindsay stay with him?
