A tale of self-discovery and transformation. Sally finds herself in a lonely world of her own making. Suffering psychological stress, unsupported and mistreated, she chooses to live alone, with only stuffed toy pets for company. Unable to change her situation, she is locked in a cycle that's impossible to escape and crippling her life. Lost in her own world, the arrival of a guest at the hotel where Sally works begins the challenging process of her opening up to the idea of a human relationship. Every day is a series of short interactions with guests and staff and each provide the basis of a series of short stories, which intertwine over the three days that the book is set. Sally's interactions with the guests increasingly challenge her long-held opinions and self-image. Will John's charm help her across the stepping stones of life and find herself willing to go on a serious date with him? At Reception is a heartfelt debut novel from Galahad Porter that draws on the issues of loneliness and stress to encourage self-discovery.

“Was swept away”

Paperback review. I was swept away by the originality of At reception. This book is without question unlike anything that I have ever read before. Galahad Porter certainly has the gift that added all the scenes nicely... More
