GLASS HOUSES — Buy it here
It is the Sunday after a General Election and Victoria James is awaiting a call from Downing Street. Part of her is desperate for the phone to ring, part of her is willing it to remain silent.
At lunchtime – as confidently predicted by the political press – she received the summons. High office awaits her: it is to be Junior Minister for Housing. Life as she knows it, for her, her husband Barney and their 16-year-old daughter Nattie, will never be quite the same. From the outset, Victoria knows the professional challenges ahead, that her political mettle will be tested to its utmost, that as a young attractive female Minister she will be living firmly in the public eye. But nothing has prepared her for a love affair that throws her completely off-balance, a love affair with a married man so well known in media circles that it can only be a matter of time before everyone knows their secret…
