Read full description of the books L'incredibile ritorno di Norah Wells:Una mattina Norah Wells esce dalla sua casa di mattoni rossi nella piccola cittadina inglese di Holdingwell e non torna più. Il marito Adam e le due figlie piccole rimangono completamente sconvolti. Norah ha lasciato solo una lettera, in cui dichiara loro tutto il suo amore, chiedendo però di non essere cercata. Sono passati sei anni da allora, e un venerdì, senza alcun preavviso, una donna dai folti capelli rossi con accanto un trolley si presenta sulla soglia della villetta. La figlia maggiore, che sta guardando fuori dalla finestra, la riconosce subito: è proprio lei, è la mamma, ed è tornata a casa. Ma nel frattempo tutto è cambiato: i mobili, il colore delle pareti, il letto. A occuparlo ora c’è un'altra donna. La migliore amica di Norah, Fay, che ha consolato Adam e ha fatto da madre alle bambine dopo la sua scomparsa. Ma perché Norah ha deciso di tornare a casa? Quello che accade dopo è raccontato in presa diretta dai protagonisti di questa magnifica storia: ognuno con la propria voce e il proprio modo di interpretare gli eventi.
Read information about the authorI was brought up in Germany, France and England by a mother who never stopped telling stories. From the moment I was old enough to hold a pen, I set about writing my own, often late into the night – or behind my Maths textbook at school. My maiden name is Virginia Woods: I was named after two great women, Virginia Wade and Virginia Woolf, in the hope I would be a writer and a tennis star. My early years were those of a scribbling, rain-loving child who prayed for lightning to strike my tennis coach.
After studying at Oxford, I started writing regularly whilst working as an English Teacher and Housemistress.
I write contemporary fiction which tackles social issues we face today, all through the lens of family life.
My debut novel, 'What Milo Saw,' came out in 2014: it reflects the humour and tragedy of contemporary Britain through four very different voices: 9 year old Milo, 92 year old Lou (Milo’s Gran), 27 year old Sandy (Milo’s mum) and 24 year old Tripi (a Syrian refugee). It explores a range of issues from the nursing home crisis in the UK, coping as a single mum, being a refugee to living with a disability - Milo has a degenerative eye condition called Retinitis Pigementosa which means he has no periphery vision - but, paradoxically, he picks up on more of what's going on than those around him, especially in his Gran's nursing home.
My second novel, 'The Astonishing Return of Norah Wells' came out in January 2016: it tells the story of a mother who walked out on her young family and came back six years later expecting to pick up where she left off . The novel takes place over a May bank holiday and, like Milo, is told through several points of view: Willa (7), Ella (14), Norah (The Mother Who Left), Fay (The Mother Who Stayed) and Adam - the dad. It's a real family drama and I hope that it will lead to some interesting discussions amongst my readers about what it means to be a mum today.
I'm working on my third novel, 'Born To Be Yours', which will be out in January 2017: once again, it's a family drama set in contemporary Britain, with a focus on international adoption.
I live in Berkshire with my husband, Hugh, my little girl, Tennessee Skye, and my two cats, Vi and Seb. I love to write in coffee shops and I walk every day, which is as much part of my creative process as putting words on the page. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that readers are enjoying my stories.
