Jessica’s Dream

“There are some dreams you have to let go before they kill you.”

Two women, two friends, two very different approaches to life. Anne lives an ostensibly normal existence with all the usual ups and downs. But she is deeply concerned about the fate of her friend Jessica. For Jessica, what many women dream of seems to have become reality: she meets the love of her life and they realise their hearts’ desire of living in an old cottage in a remote and unspoilt Welsh valley. But Anne, who envies Jessica in many ways, becomes witness to a dramatic development: the formerly radiant young Jessica is fading in her Welsh solitude, despite the fact that she ostensibly has everything she ever wanted. Has her paradise become a prison...?

• the moving and sensitively related story of a woman who clings to her dream until it becomes a living nightmare…
• an atmospheric novel set against the magical backdrop of the Welsh countryside
