9780099415381: A Special Relationship

Sally Goodchild is everything you'd expect of a thirty-seven year old American journalist - independent, strong-willed and ambitious. That is until she meets Tony Hobbs, an English foreign correspondent, on assignment in Cairo. After a passionate but uneasy romance, Sally's life is turned upside down when she unexpectedly finds herself married, pregnant and living in London.

Married life in a foreign place is a far bigger adjustment than Sally and Tony could ever have imagined - and as their lives shift from freedom and adventure to responsibility and hard work, everyday problems soon spiral into nightmares. After the birth of their son, Sally finds herself trapped in a downward spiral of post-natal depression over which she has little control, whilst Tony's life returns to relative normality. Filled with resentment and unable to cope with the cards life has dealt her, Sally is shocked when the man she trusted above all others turns against her. As her world begins to fall down around her, Sally quickly realises she must fight before she loses everything.

In this authentic and compelling novel, Kennedy explores the misunderstandings that can occur when two people speak the same language but miss all the vital signs.

Review:

"Kennedy knows how to keep the pages turning...A pacy, absorbing and intelligent story" ( Elizabeth Buchan, The Times)

"Excellent ... The pace is thriller-like, so cancel all engagements for the duration" ( Good Housekeeping)

"Writing in the first person as a woman, [Kennedy] pulls off a bold imaginative transformation that I find enthralling and persuasive" ( Jonathan Raban)

"His impressive achievement is... his narrator Sally, whose turbulent emotions he conveys with an unusual depth of understanding" ( Times Literary Supplement)
