The Pursuit of Love Summary

The Pursuit of Love is one of the funniest and most biting novels about love and growing up ever written, by the author of Love in a Cold Climate.

Oh, the boredom of waiting to grow up! Longing for love, obsessed with weddings and sex, Linda and her sisters and cousin Fanny fantasise about the perfect lover. But finding Mr Right proves difficult, and Linda must bear marriage with both Tony the stuffy Tory MP and gorgeously handsome but humourless communist Christian before finding real passion in war-torn Paris with Fabrice.

    Fanny, who is married to the bumbling, absent-minded Oxford don Alfred, is content with her role as a plain, tweedy housewife. But her life changes overnight when Alfred is appointed English Ambassador to Paris. Suddenly she is mixing with royalty, Rothschilds and Dior-clad wives, giving cocktail parties and having her every move and outfit printed in the papers the next day.
