About this item
Ever since Jennifer exchanged her high-flying career for a life by the sea with her little boy, Charlie and their dog, Sausage, she hasn't looked back. Not even once. Not on the emotional debris of her broken engagement to fiance, Dave, nor the one night of stupidity that caused it. But all that is about to change...Four-year-old Charlie's new life at school has started so well: he's made friends, settled in, is beginning to make his own little way in the world. But when a casual trip to the doctor leads to Charlie facing the biggest challenge of his young life, Jennifer has to confront the past she thought she could safely forget. Acclaim for Turning Turtle : 'A hugely enjoyable book, that delves with an assured, smart tone into the big themes...an entertaining and funny first novel' The Irish Times '...A quick-paced, intelligent personal adventure written in witty, fluid prose' Sunday Independent 'A new angle on an old story, written with charm and understated skill. Don't miss it' Terry Prone, Evening Herald 'With sparkling dialogue and fast pace, Denise Deegan...takes old hat and turns it into Philip Treacy' Irish Independent Also by Denise Deegan: Turning Turtle.
