Book Description

Abigail Jex never expected to see any of the Radley household again. In dramatic contrast to her own conventional family, the Radley's were extraordinary, captivating creatures, transplanted from a bohemian corner of North London to outer suburbia, and the young Abigail found herself drawn into their magic circle: the eccentric Frances, her new best friend; Frances' mother, the liberated, headstrong Lexi; and of course the brilliant, beautiful Rad.

An intense and thrilling teen mystery set on a tranquil island where all seems perfect...

Editor's Wife by Clare Chambers Editor's Wife, Paperback (February 2008)

When aspiring novelist Christopher Flinders drops out of university to write his masterpiece (in between shifts as a fish delivery man and builder's mate), his family is sceptical. But when he is taken up by the London editor Owen Goddard and his charming wife Diana it seems success is just around the corner.

In a Good Light by Clare Chambers In a Good Light, Paperback (June 2005)

Memories she had long chosen to forget begin to resurface. Memories of an eccentric childhood in a large and shabby house, where the children were very much left to fend for themselves within the loose boundaries of their parents' unorthodox values. A chaotic existence peopled by a rich collection of feckless 'guests'.

Back Trouble by Clare Chambers Back Trouble, Paperback (December 2001)

On the brink of 40, newly single with a failed business, Philip thought he'd reached an all-time low. It only needed a discarded chip on a South London street to lay him literally flat. So, bedbound and bored, Philip writes the story of his life, only to reveal some comic and touching surprises.

UK Kirkus Review » Abigail, product of a timid surburban background, is bedazzled by the mildly bohemian Radleys: Frances becomes her best friend; she falls in love with Marcus. A halcyon period carries her through adolescence until a quarrel and freakish tragedy sever their intimacy. Thirteen years later Abigail re-encounters Marcus (now a sophisticated musician) to find the magic undimmed. Warm, funny and touching, this was the winner of the 1999 Romantic Novel of the Year award. (Kirkus UK)
