Amazon Review

If you like books that leave you feeling a little weepy once you've turned the final page then you'll love Jojo Moyes' second novel Foreign Fruit (her debut, Sheltering Sky, is equally appealing.) Set in Merham, a very English seaside town, it tells the stories of Lottie Swift and Daisy Parsons whose lives, upon arrival at the unremarkable town, are transformed.

The book opens in the 1950s with Lottie, an evacuee who's staying with the respectable Holden family and their daughter Celia, where "noise and suppressed hysteria" are the norm. Their small town ways are dramatically disrupted when Arcadia, the Art Deco house overlooking the sea, is taken over by a fast and Bohemian set where "nude painting and uncertain domestic situations" are the order of the day. Adeline, the Queen Bee in the set-up, declares that Lottie needs "to learn to dream". Good advice, except that her dream comes in the shape of Guy, the handsome son of a melon and banana importer. Lottie is instantly smitten, but Guy is engaged to Celia. Forbidden fruit, indeed.

Fast forward to the present and the perils of Daisy Parker. She's has been abandoned by her partner, is the new mother of a little baby, and has taken on the all-consuming project of renovating Arcadia for a businessman called Jones. The owner of the "ocean liner" house, has, up until recently been Lottie Swift. In a series of emotionally rewarding and devastating encounters secrets from the past and present are tantalisingly revealed. --Eithne Farry

From the Publisher

Jojo Moyes's first novel, SHELTERING RAIN, was one of the most-loved debuts that's ever come through this office. We all read it; we gave it to our friends, sisters, mothers, daughters and grandmothers. Women of all ages, from all walks of life, adored it. Pure escapism, many of them called it, but escapist stuff they could recognise bits of themselves in.

FOREIGN FRUIT has all those strengths and more. Like the previous novel, it spans two periods - the Fifties and the present day - and reaches right inside characters young and old. It is even more accomplished than SHELTERING RAIN, and I am sure that the critics are right: anyone who likes Maeve Binchy and Rosamunde Pilcher will love this novel.
