The Queen of Bloody Everything Hardback
by Joanna Nadin
And in that instant I fall in love. Not just with him, though he is the better part of it, but with them both, with the whole scene: the house, the garden, the magazine perfection of it. And I want very badly to be in this picture. As Edie Jones lies in a bed on the fourteenth floor of a Cambridge hospital, her adult daughter Dido tells their story, starting with the day that changed everything. That was the day when Dido - aged exactly six years and twenty-seven days old - met the handsome Tom Trevelyan, his precocious sister, Harry, and their parents, Angela and David. The day Dido fell in love with a family completely different from her own. Because the Trevelyans were exactly the kind of family six year-old Dido dreamed of.
Normal. And Dido's mother, Edie, doesn't do normal. In fact, as Dido has learnt the hard way, normal is the one thing Edie can never be . . .
