The Lonely Hearts Lido Club (Charlie Lyndhurst)
Three strangers all caught in the deep end... but can they help each other float through?
After tragically losing her husband Arnold and being left a single mother to two children, Gabriella has only one escape for herself - swimming at a local London lido to clear her mind.
A constant stream of both new and familiar faces visit the lido like Gabriella - but she doesn't suspect any are suffering quite like her, until she meets Mare - who swims to escape her emotionless husband, and Ian - who feels lost in the deep end after becoming unemployed and unable to tell his husband.
Grateful for new companionship, the group decide to make their friendship into something more permanent: The Lonely Hearts Lido Club.
An uplifting, captivating read about the power of friendship - fans of Hazel Prior and Mike Gayle will adore this.
