Cressida Connolly After the Party

Cressida Connolly My Former Heart


When she grew up, Ruth would say that she could place the day that her mother had decided to go awayShe didn’t know the actual date, but she recalled the occasion: it was on the afternoon of a wet day, early in 1942, during a visit to the cinema. She thought she could even pinpoint the exact moment at which Iris had made up her mind to go, leaving her only child behind. Neither of them could have guessed then that they would never live together again.Spanning the second half of the last century, ‘My Former Heart’, Cressida Connolly’s mesmerising first novel, charts the lives of three generations of Iris’s family. Ruth will be deserted again, many years later, by a husband she loves, but not before she has had two children by him. She leaves London to live with her uncle, where she creates a new life for herself with another woman. And we follow the lives of her two children, trying to make a place for themselves in the world in the shadow of the family that precedes them.With its large cast of fascinating characters, this is an outstanding novel about families and their ability to adapt. It surely marks the beginning of a long career as a novelist for Cressida Connolly.

Kinsella Sophie The Tennis Party


It was Patrick's idea that they should have the tennis party. After all, he has the perfect setting - the White House, bought out of his bonuses as an investment banker. He hasn't actually told Caroline, his brash and beautiful wife, what the real reason for the party is. She is glad to welcome Stephen and Annie, their impoverished former neighbours, less glad to see newly wealthy Charles and his aristocratic wife Cressida, and barely able to tolerate the deadly competitive Don and Valerie. But as the first ball is served over the net it signals the start of two days of tempers, shocks, revelations, the arrival of an uninvited guest, and the realization that the weekend is about anything but tennis.

J D Svenson Direct Action


ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST. SABOTEUR. TERRORIST.
Her client took direct action to ‘stop the coal’. When the rich and powerful take an interest, criminal charges may be the least of their worries …
Cressida Mitsok is a successful corporate lawyer about to make partner at a large city law firm. The only problem will be the partners taking issue with her father serving time for white-collar crime, though no charges were laid against Cressida.
But during her partnership interview, the lights go out – everywhere. Three NSW coal-fired power stations have been blown up, and the boss’s daughter, Joanne, is among those responsible. The boss makes it clear that Cressida’s partnership now rides on her defending Joanne.
Cressida’s hothead new client has already confessed to sabotage but might be charged with terrorism. Cressida is a building lawyer, not an expert in criminal law. As Cressida struggles to get on top of the case, manage her usual caseload and keep her partnership hopes alive – not to mention her ailing love life – she becomes impressed with her client’s passion.
Soon Cressida’s life is being turned upside-down and she keeps finding herself on the wrong side of the law. Could she be more like her father than she realised?
