Small Pleasures

BY CLARE CHAMBERS

At a local newspaper in South East London in 1957, journalist Jean Swinney receives a curious letter written to the editor. Gretchen Tilbury – abeautiful, well-to-do woman – claims her 10-year-old daughter is the product of a virgin birth. Gretchen has absolute proof that no man was involved in her miraculous pregnancy. Jean’s monotonous life is flung into a deep-dive investigation that takes her across England. Will solving the mystery help her find happiness and purpose, or will it turn out to be a messy affair that results in the implosion of work and personal relationships? Small Pleasures is a compelling read. You’ll find yourself trying to separate fact from fiction, not unlike Gretchen does on her gripping journey.
