My fifth novel, Christmas at Winterbourne, was published in November 2016. The story takes place over four days of the Christmas holidays at a lesbian retreat in Sussex, Winterbourne House. Wil and Gaby are the owners and hosts to the family and guests arriving for the festivities. Gaby is heavily pregnant and hoping to get through this Christmas period without giving birth. But, of course, she does…on Boxing Day.
This short story, a visit to Winterbourne House four years later, gave me the chance to see how things were going with the family and two of their former guests. Teri is looking forward to her fourth birthday and all she wants for Christmas is…snow. Lots of it…just like at the time of her birth, when Winterbourne House was snowbound.
