The Undomestic Goddess (Paperback)Sophie Kinsella (author)
- In stock
One of the leading lights of the literary rom com delivers another pitch perfect slice of feel-good fiction making masterful use of mistaken identity and character comedy along the way. Gloriously romantic and consistently hilarious, The Undomestic Goddess is fish-out-of-water farce of the highest order.
Samantha is a high-powered lawyer in London. She works all hours, has no home life, and cares only about getting a partnership.She thrives on the pressure and adrenalin. Until one day...she makes a mistake.
A mistake so huge, it'll wreck her career. She walks right out of the office, gets on the first train she sees, and finds herself in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she is mistaken for the interviewee housekeeper and finds herself being offered the job. They have no idea they've hired a Cambridge-educated lawyer with an IQ of 158 - Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. Disaster ensues.
It's chaos as Samantha battles with the washing machine...the ironing board...and attempts to cook a cordon bleu dinner.But gradually, she falls in love with her new life in a wholly unexpected way. Will her employers ever discover the truth? Will Samantha's old life ever catch up with her? And if it does...will she want it back?
