LUCK OF THE DRAW
Kate Clayborn Loot.co.za (R239) KENSINGTON
A WINNING lottery ticket lands Zoe Ferris the chance to quit her unrewarding job as a lawyer.
But she can’t quite assuage her guilt over the work she did on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry. In search of peace, she decides to make amends, beginning with a family involved in one of her settlements – at which point she meets a grieving brother who pulls no punches. In the hands of a lesser author, this could be preachy and heavy, but Clayborn’s characters are bright and nuanced; her dialogue quick and clever. |
