Luck by Joan Barfoot
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


One woman is an ex-beauty-queen, one is a recovering addict to virtue, one is an artist. The man of the big old house on the hill, Philip Lawrence, is suddenly dead. These things happen. But Philip's silent departure is bound to have dramatic effects. The abruptly widowed Nora, whose recent works of biblical art have caused a fundamentalist furore in the town where they live, is unexpectedly confronted by solo life in a place she despises. Beth, her wispy, beautiful model, faces losing a haven from her own eerie history, while housekeeper Sophie, a former overseas aid volunteer shattered by trauma, will have to find new ways to resist old compulsions. Luck follows the three days after Philip's death as the women career through circumstances none of them could ever have imagined. 3 days, 3 women. The big question is 'What next?'
