The House on Fortune Street
A NoveleBook - 2011
It seems like mutual good luck for Abigail and Dara when they meet at university and, despite their differences, become fast friends. Years later, they remain an unlikely pair: Abigail, an actress who confidently uses her charms both on and off stage, is reluctant to commit; Dara, a therapist, throws herself into every relationship with frightening intensity. Yet each seems-- another stroke of luck?-- to have found " true love" -- Abigail with her academic boyfriend, and Dara with a tall, dark violinist. Soon, however, trouble threatens both relationships and the women' s friendship. Through four ingeniously interlocking narratives, Margot Livesey skillfully reveals how luck-- good and bad-- plays a vital role in our lives, and how our childhood legacies may be harder to leave behind than we hope.
