ERICA JAMES The Song of the Skylark
Winner of the Romantic Novel of the Year Award, Erica James weaves an enchanting tale of life, loss and love in her glorious new novel. Lizzie has a knack for attracting bad luck, and now she’s hit the jackpot. Losing her heart to her boss at the radio station where she works leads directly to losing her job, and she’s forced to swallow her pride and return home to her parents. When her mother finds her work at the local care home for the elderly, Lizzie meets Mrs Dallimore, a lady who is reluctantly coming to terms with old age. She gives in to the temptation to relive the past by sharing it with Lizzie, and tells of the day when, shortly before the Second World War, she left America for England to meet her English grandparents for the first time. Hoping for a family reconciliation, her visit turned into so much more. As Lizzie listens to Mrs Dallimore’s story, she realises that she’s not the only person to attract bad luck, or make mistakes . . . ‘Delightful . . . a blend of emotion and wry social observation’ Daily Mail Erica James is the author of many bestselling novels, including Gardens of Delight, which won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award, and her recent Sunday Times Top 10 bestsellers, Summer at the Lake and The Dandelion Years. Erica divides her time between Suffolk and Lake Como in Italy.
