The London Train Paperback
by Tessa Hadley
Two lives stretched between two cities, two stories bound by the London train.
Paul sets out in search of his eldest daughter Pia, who has gone missing somewhere in London.
At first he thinks he wants to rescue her, but as time passes he is drawn deeper into the excitements of the capital, and a life lived in jeopardy - he forgets his own way home.
In the opposite direction, Cora is moving back to Cardiff, to the house she inherited from her parents.
She is escaping her marriage and the disappointments of her London life. And then she receives a telephone call to say that her husband has disappeared...

Review by herschelian
Beautiful intelligent writing, two novellas that are subtly linked.
