    Three sisters and a brother meet up in their grandparents' old house for three long, hot summer weeks. The house is full of memories of their childhood and their past, but now they may have to sell it. And under the idyllic surface, there are tensions. Secrets are uncovered, and passions erupt as a way of life - bourgeois, literate, ritualised - winds down to its inevitable end.

    Clever Girl follows the story of Stella, from her childhood with her single mother in a Bristol bedsit in the 1960s into the mysterious shallows of her middle age. The story is full of drama - violent deaths, an abrupt end to Stella's schooldays, two sons by different fathers – yet it is Hadley’s observation of ordinary lives, of the way men and women think and feel and interact, that dazzles.

    Kate Flynn, 43, has given up her university career to come home and look after her mother in Firenze, their big house by a lake in Cardiff. When Kate meets her old friend David Roberts, she begins to obsess about him: she knows it's because she's bored, but she can't stop. David is married, rational, and dependable: the last type to want an affair. David's marriage isn't as solid as it looks, though, so he takes refuge in Firenze, where he can talk to Kate about music.
