Why is Juliana always cast as the victim in her films? It's her eyes: 'they widen so nicely in terror'. In movies, she has been stabbed, bludgeoned and, once, impaled upon a decorative sword. Now it may be that her once-loving husband is trying to kill her - or has Juliana become too suggestible? The elements - a frozen corpse, a stalker and a high-voltage courtroom drama - echo her starring roles, but where is her romantic saviour? The police show no signs of being knights in shining armour; her lawyer just wants her money: life, she discovers, is very different from the movies. Even the charm of her lake-resort town turns out to be a facade, hiding a divorce-and-dysfunction cottage industry. Taut as a thriller and beautifully written, Dreams of Rescue turns the female-in-peril story on its head, illuminating the secrets of a dangerous marriage and creating a contemporary tale as powerful as the classics Rebecca and Gaslight.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for BEAUTIFUL BODIES: 'This novel really is luminous and dark, funny and sad, airy and filled with meaning' New York Observer 'Wonderfully entertaining...and wise...a generous and gifted writer' New York Times Book Review Praise for SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: 'A beautiful story that I will cherish for years to come' Harper Lee 'SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS is so funny and quirky, and it's written with such a deft touch, that at first you many not recognise its underlying seriousness...Laugh all you like while you're reading , but once you've finished, you may find yourself sitting very quietly for a while, mulling over the marvels of this truly wonderful book' Anne Tyler
