AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Who says a modern girl can’t believe in fairytales?

'Scatty, funny and smart, Lucy is a hopeless romantic. With an unshakeable faith in happy endings, she drives her friends Meg and Chloe crazy as she tries time and again to make her best friend Tom fall in love with her.

'Then Lucy meets the man of her dreams – or so it seems – and must finally decide whether true love is fact, fiction, or something in between.'

Notes

  • Dedication: For my sister Nene may all your wishes come true
  • Epigraph: She would have liked to live in some old manor-house, like those chatelaines in their long corsages, under their trefoiled Gothic arches, spending their days, elbows on the parapet and chin in hand, looking out far across the fields for the white-plumed rider galloping towards her on his black horse. (Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary)

    To be beloved is all I need, /And whom I love, I love indeed. (Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
