"Reads like a cross between I Capture the Castle and Love, Nina, with a pinch of Adrian Mole". (The Bookseller). "We defy you not to love Sue". (Good Housekeeping). Life is full of terrible things. Ghosts of dead relatives, heartbreak ...burnt toast.
In 1987, Sue Bowl's world changes for ever. Her mother dies, leaving her feeling like she's lost a vital part of herself. And then her father shacks up with an awful man-eater called Ivana.
But Sue's mother always told her to make the most of what she's got - and what she's got is a love of writing and some eccentric relatives.
So Sue moves to her Aunt Coral's crumbling ancestral home, where she fully intends to write a book and fall in love ...and perhaps drink Campari for breakfast Campari for Breakfast is a heart-warming, eccentric novel that joins the ranks of great British coming-of-age novels such as Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle and Nancy Mitford's The Pursuit of Love.
