I think he’ll go on trying to avoid me now until he leaves home ssing the playground, but he’s never in his room when I try to see him in the lunch hour.

Love and War - Sian James.
Schoolteacher Rhian Evans doesn’t doubt that a Welsh love affair, as it is often noted, is only made up of 10% sex. For the three long years of her husband’s absence, she has stayed true to her strict chapel upbringing and has lived in celibacy. But Rhian wishes she was more like Ilona Hughes, her scandalous lodger. With her great appetite for life and men, Ilona is a breath of fresh air, and when her zestful spirit begins to influence Rhian, the ripples are felt throughout their small coastal town. Love and War - Sian James.
