Sheer Abandon

Sheer Abandon

An abandoned baby girl, a secret, the story of survival – Penny Vincenzi’s SHEER ABANDON is the story of one desperate act, and the consequences that follow… ‘Like a glass of champagne: bubbly, moreish and you don’t want it to end’ Daily Express Perfect for readers of Elizabeth Buchan, Jilly Cooper or Santa Montefiore

One night in 1986 an abandoned baby girl is found in a cupboard at Heathrow airport. A year earlier Martha, Clio and Jocasta had met by chance, at the start of a backpacking adventure: they travelled together briefly and then went their own ways, swearing to meet again when they return home. But it would be a long time until they met again: not until Kate, the foundling, is a teenager, and all three are leading successful lives. Martha is a single, highly paid lawyer, Clio a doctor, locked in an unhappy marriage, and Jocasta a reporter, in love with a charming commitment-phobe. Which of them is Kate’s mother? Why was she desperate enough to do such a thing, and how did she survive it?
