The Ne­c­es­sary Mar­riage

Essentials (South Africa) - - ESSENTIALIST -

BY ELIS A LODATO (ORION PUB­LISH­ING ) Six­teen-year-old Jane falls madly in love with her hand­some and at­ten­tive school teacher Leonard Camp­bell. They marry and have two chil­dren to­gether be­fore Jane re­alises that she might’ve rushed things and set­tled too early, los­ing much of herself in the process. A fiery cou­ple, Mar­ion and An­drew, move in next door; soon af­ter, Mar­ion dis­ap­pears leav­ing Jane to help An­drew with their two sons while he tries to find his feet. But Jane grap­ples with her feel­ings when de­sire and loy­alty are blurred. A novel about fam­ily ties, and the de­sire for free­dom.
