9780099589891: Thirst

The beginning of a relationship is usually all about getting to know each other, sharing stories far into the night, comparing experiences, triumphs and heartaches, until we know one another inside out.

Not so for Dave and Alena. He’s from London, she’s from Siberia. They meet in a sleek Bond Street department store in the frayed heat of high summer, where she’s up to no good and it’s his job to catch her. So begins an unlikely relationship between two people with pasts, with secrets, they’ve no idea how to live with -- or leave behind. But despite everything they don’t have in common, all the details they won’t and can’t reveal, they still find themselves fighting with all they’ve got for a future together.

An unconventional, will-they-won’t-they love story, that takes us from London to Siberia, and from hope to heartbreak, and back again.

Review:

"Hudson captures the bustle of life in Hackney and Russia with energy and a sharp eye for detail… [Her characters] have love, guts, humour and conscience. This is Love on the Dole 21st-century style" (Louise Welsh Guardian)

"Accomplished… There are villains, but no obvious heroes… It’s a bleak outlook, but Hudson makes it beautiful. Heart-wrenching without being maudlin, Thirst is a novel about the scraps of hope that people find when they’re completely out of options" (Katie Welsh Independent on Sunday)

"An unusual love story... a refreshing change from the plethora of middle-class novel fare that simply holds a mirror to the majority of readers" (John Harding Daily Mail)

"Tremendously affecting... impressively unostentatious in its instinct for a common story within a city of millions that never gets heard" (Claire Allfree Metro)

"A brilliant, enthralling saga, Thirst presents with such uncommon verisimilitude that scarcely a syllable appears contrived" (Joseph Crilly Irish Times)

Book Description:

An unconventional, will-they-won’t-they love story, that takes us from London to Siberia, and from hope to heartbreak, and back again.
