London Holiday is crafted with all the charm and acumen that won Richard Peck awards for his classic young-adult novels. But this time his characters are entirely grown-up--or so they think, until a carefree getaway becomes a journey of self-discovery reminiscent of Mary Wesley and Joanna Trollope.London Holiday finds three women leading ordinary lives: Lesley is a St. Louis society woman; Julia is a successful Manhattan interior designer; and Margo, a teacher, is the divorced mother of a teenager. Best friends since their Missouri childhood, they are awakened to the realities of their often dreary existences by a shocking act of violence. Now desperate for change, the three friends escape on a trip to London and the unexpected promise of new lives awaiting them. Safe in the cozy confines of Mrs. Smith-Porter's bed-and-breakfast, the women enter a gracious new world of tea in the garden, antique markets, lush countryside, and'romance.
