To celebrate next month’s publication of The Country Set, I’m launching the revamped fionawalker.com: a Google-friendly goody-bag of book jackets and character sketches, latest news, vintage blogs, book blurbs and insider information – all wrapped up in more homespun, organic, Farrow and Ball yumminess than a Cotswold farm shop. Welcome! And let me introduce my latest book…
The Country Set, published on 5th October, is the first novel in the Comptons series, a big-cast rural romp guaranteed to take you on a muddy-faced gallop through country life.
Full-sized, bouncy and moreish, it’s a box set of a book, jam-packed with episodes. Old friendships and new flirtations abound, along with secrets and rivalries, plus horses, dogs, parties, lots fast riding and fully-loaded guns…
This autumn’s gorgeous hardback – which comes complete with map and family trees – is the ‘directors cut’; subsequent editions will be a few scenes lighter to fit in beach bags. So if you want the luxuriously unabridged story, order it now – I hope you’ll agree it’s perfect for curling up with in front of the fire as the nights draw in.
Meanwhile, please do explore the all-new website. You can read more about the Comptons where the new series is set, look at the village map, and find out about some of the families who live there. There’s information about all my seventeen previous books from French Relations to The Weekends of You and Me, along with excerpts and an insider author view of each one.
If you’d like to see anything else on these pages, ask anything about my books and writing, or just say hello, don’t hesitate to use the contact page or the social media links. There’s nothing that cheers a writer more than getting a message. And I really hope you visit again soon.
