WARNING: Contains Spoilers

Highly readable novel featuring a varied cast of characters. The protagonist is an overweight woman named Kate who has a disinterested, indifferent husband. She begins writing fiction and enters the complex world of British publishing. Meanwhile Joy, who is an agent meets Kate at a party in the bathroom. She has a super nasty and irresistable husband who is very guilty of domestic violence. Kate is the kind of protagonist who immediately one feels for and supports. Well Done

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752809318, Paperback)

Three very different women meet by chance at a glittering London party. Aspiring novelist Kate Howard is shackled to an unfeeling husband. She knows that she wants to write, but is anyone going to give her a chance? Dedicated editor Gloria Catchpole could once have had the pick of every powerful man in publishing. Right now work is the only challenge she can handle. Literary agent Joy Trenchard is devastated when her violent husband kidnaps their daughter. The only way she knows how to fight back is to pull off the deal of the decade. They're ready to make advances. How far will they go?
