BOOK: Outside the Ordinary World

AUTHOR: Dori Ostermiller

PUBLISHER: Mira Books

RRP: $32.99

 

 

SYLVIA Sandon, watching her mother trapped in a loveless marriage, is determined not to follow the same path.

Her mother had had a special friend, a man who shared her secrets.

He bought her girls ice creams and made their mother laugh, something the girls didn't see her do at home often.

When the family moved their mother became bitter and unable to cope with the pressures placed on her without her friend.

Years later Sylvia finds herself following in her mother's footsteps.

With her marriage in tatters, her children old enough for her not to be needed, she finds solace in one of her student's father.

Tai Rosen is like no other man she has ever met.

His passion and lust for life fills her with a joy for living once again but the consequences that come from their time together will set in motion a chain of events that will leave your breathless.

Outside the Ordinary World is set against the backdrop of the California bushfires of the 1970s.

Dori Ostermiller has weaved a compelling story about what lies beneath the surface of infidelity, the sometimes disturbing bonds between mothers and daughters and the thin line between self-revelation and self-destruction.
