Synopsis

Whatever Love is by Rosie Rushton

What would happen if Jane Austen's MANSFIELD PARK was set in the twenty-first century? When Frankie Price goes to live with her wealthy cousins, she finds herself part of a social scene that she'd only read about in magazines. Shy and overwhelmed, she retreats into her own passion: writing - pouring out her feelings into her short stories. But when the entire family is rocked by scandal, and her mate Ned comes under the spell of the beautiful but manipulative Alice, Frankie realises that she has to fight for the life she wants.

About the Author

Rosie Rushton

Rosie Rushton can’t quite believe she is a proper author. Proper authors get up in the morning, cry "Eureka!" and rush to their word processors to bash out three chapters of erudite prose before leaving to address an up-market seminar on The Value of the Sub- clause.

Rosie Rushton gets up in the morning, eats too much muesli, indulges in a little light foot-stamping because she can’t think of any good ideas and goes shopping to escape the rigours of Chapter Four. On a good day, she writes for six hours – that is if you don’t count the breaks for long emails to her friends, panic-stricken phone calls to publishers and a quick visit to see her grandchildren and get a go with the Bionic Lego. On even better days, she hurtles round the country visiting schools to run creative writing workshops which are a jolly good idea because the pupils come up with far better ideas for her books than she ever could.

Rosie Rushton began her career as a feature writer for a local paper. Staying Cool, Surviving School was her first book, published by Piccadilly Press in 1993. After writing another non-fiction title, You’re My Best Friend, I Hate You! (available from Puffin), Rosie turned to fiction. A conversation with Piccadilly turned to embarrassing parents and The Leehampton Quartet was born.

Rosie lives in Moulton, Northamptonshire. She is a school governor of a new secondary school and in May 2005 will be licensed as a Reader in the Church of England. Her hobbies (aside from the Lego) are: tracing her family history to see who she can blame for her dottiness, fine wine and food – an interest to which her buttocks bear evidence – travelling the world, being with her grandchildren, walking, theatre, reading and all things Indian. In the future she wants to write a TV drama for teenage audiences, visit Kathmandu, write the novel that has been pounding in her brain for years but has never quite got to the keyboard, and learn to slow down and smell the roses.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
