Genre: Literary – Women’s Fiction
Celeste Unraveled at 81,000 words is Upmarket Women’s Fiction suitable for book clubs.
Celeste’s former role as a high-profile nurse manager in a busy urban hospital ends abruptly when restructuring hits her personally. Like her peers, she has dreamed of retirement as a time for herself, to explore other parts of her personality, but not now. When her husband, Adrian, loses his job and embarks on a new career as a consultant, they leave the city for the sophisticated small town of Niagara-on-the-Lake where they link up with like-minded couples.
Instead, a year later, Celeste opens her eyes to blue sky and a circle of bare legs and black boots, the noise of a siren in the background. When she tries to move her head, every part of her body hurts. Blood streaks across the bodice of her silk dress, down her arm and over her fingertips. Her careful plans about a new life lie around her in shreds. How had she let this happen to herself? Where would she go from here?
