'The touch of his hands on mine made a surge run up my arms.
He must have been carrying a lot of static. Something to do with his polyester shirt. Or maybe it was static in me. I once got an electric shock from a pineapple.' Corinne has a new house and a new career.
Does she even have the time for a new man? Corinne doesn't think so - she's too busy turning her hobbies into a business, helping out on a friend's allotment and trying to get on with her new reclusive neighbour, Rob.
But when her elderly father becomes seriously ill, the thought of losing him tips her into a passionate affair with Charles, a man she barely knows.
When her world begins to change, and Corinne is struggling to cope, who will be there to offer support?
Funny and delicately observed, "Zuzu's Petals" is a tender, compelling story about family, friendship and different kinds of love.
