‘Women Of A Dangerous Age’ by Fanny Blake

‘You’re going to India?’ Fiona had sounded as if Lou was about to enter a dark labyrinth: fraught with danger and quite unsuitable.

‘Yes, I am.’ As she spoke, Lou had realised that was exactly what she was going to do. Going away would absolve her from all the problems of Christmas at home. She would escape from Hooker, their three children and her matchmaking friends who seemed to pursue their goal with an untimely and unwelcome fervour.

Instead, she would separate the last thirty years of her life from the next thirty by getting out of the country – on her own.


The title of this book gives away much of the plot, but I am curious to know just how dangerous this woman can get !!

The synopsis for this book attracted quite a lot of comment, from those of you who visited and read the post.

I suspect that these first few lines are going to fuel more speculation about whether Lou has totally lost the plot, or whether she really will benefit from getting away from her family and friends !!


Would the first few lines of your book make you want to read on?

If so, would you like to share them with us, (without revealing too many spoilers of course) ?

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
