Lady Kiri Lawford mindent megtesz, hogy tökéletes úrinőként tagja lehessen az előkelő angol társaságnak, indiai gyökereit azonban nem hajlandó megtagadni. Miután származása miatt vérlázítóan megalázzák egy vidéki összejövetelen, elköt egy lovat és éjnek évadján egyedül indul vissza Londonba. A viharos éjjelen csempészek fogságába kerül, ahonnan a…
Juliet is a blink-and-you-miss-it kind of town—a dusty oasis on the edge of a vast stretch of sand. It’s easy to believe nothing of consequence happens here, but the hills vibrate with the rich stories of its people: Lee, a rancher afraid to accept responsibility for the land his adoptive parents left him; Norval, the bank manager forced to foreclose on his neighbors; Willard and Marian, a shy couple beyond middle age, fumbling with the recognition of their feelings for each other; Vicki, a mother of six struggling to keep her chaotic household afloat. And somewhere, lost in the sand, a camel named Antoinette.
Juliet in August unfolds over the course of just one night and day in the lives of its characters. Their stories intersect and overlap as the entire spectrum of human comedy and heartbreak is refracted through their little struggles and deeper concerns. With wit, thoughtfulness, and unforgettable characters, Juliet in August confirms Dianne Warren as a powerful new talent.
