‘I can’t live with guilt, and I have felt guilty enough to die . . .’

Writer Christine Hall’s own loving relationships and empathetic intelligence make her the perfect confidante for a group of friends: architect Eric Aveling – whose wife Lois is dying, Junius Evans, Aveling’s flamboyant business partner, and, above all, eccentric, impulsive Celia Baird. When death forces a realignment of relationships within the group even the perceptive Christine is not prepared for the final outcome.

Moving between London and a south coast seaside town, The Last Resort is a sensitive and vividly human exploration of the hidden side of marriage, where dark undercurrents of duty, guilt, secrecy and loneliness can all play a part in deviating the course of love and influencing the choices that life thrusts upon us.

Pamela Hansford Johnson wrote 27 novels across genres as diverse as romance, comedy and tragedy. An incredibly readable and literary author, who deserves to be rediscovered by a new generation, Bello has brought 18 of Johnson’s books back into print.
