No Rhyme Nor Reason
"Like all complicated things, it began very simply"
Sarah Martin goes to university in York to study English and be free to reinvent herself. Soon, however, she finds herself locked in a tempestuous lesbian affair with Jules, whilst secretly lusting after her best friend Suzanne's boyfriend, Dick. Things get more complicated when her break up with Jules causes total writer's block and her writing professor threatens her with ejection from university if she doesn't turn in her major poetry project. Sarah discovers a secret store of Suzanne's poems and submits one as her own.
Then Suzanne dies suddenly. Sarah marries Dick.
Shifting from present to past and back, the pieces of Sarah's story start to fit together. Why is she so guilty? Where are the rest of Suzanne's poems? What happened the night of Suzanne's death?
Interwoven with the action, the scenery of Yorkshire, the Lake District, Cornwall, Greece and Petra provide a stunning backdrop to the revelations that could destroy Sarah's marriage.
