9780002256339: Baby Love

Fast-paced literary thriller in which ex-bellydancer Angeline’s fight to protect three-year-old Lily draws her back into the seedy underworld of her past – the first book in Louisa Young’s celebrated Anglo-Egyptian trilogy of Evangeline Gower novels.

Angeline is a single parent whose child is the daughter of her sister, killed in a motorbike accident while eight months pregnant. Angeline, who was driving the bike, sustained injuries which put an end to her career as a cabaret bellydancer and she now leads an exemplary life, writing and looking after Lily. But when she gets into a spot of bother with the police, she is drawn into the shadow world of drug dealers, pornographers and bent coppers that seems to have bizarre connections with her sister and her past.

Featuring a 1957 Pontiac, a Harley Davidson, sequinned bras, drugs, deals and social workers, and with a plot that makes you rush to the end, this is a thriller without violence, a romance without sentiment and a brilliantly exciting debut.

Review:

From the reviews of A Great Task of Happiness:

‘It is impossible to put this book down’
Frances Spalding, Sunday Times

‘A fascinating, racy book’
Beryl Bainbridge, Spectator

‘Written with the brio of a latter-day Mitford’
Miranda Seymour, Independent

From the Author:

author of babylove admits absurdity, denies silliness
Thank you, the readers who gave babylove five crowns. Thank you too the person who thinks it is silly - as an author, you never get an honest comment to your face, most people being at best civil, at worst grovelly. But Angeline is not me (I've never bellydanced or met a psychopath); women do ride and love motorbikes (I did for years). And there are plenty of blonde bellydancers (neither blondeness nor bellydancing are ridiculous in themselves, are they?) - the Middle East is full of them, because as a profession for a woman such dancing is considered disreputable by many moslems...
