One Apple Tasted
By: Josa Young
Meet Dora Jerusalem, features assistant to the assistant features editor of Modern Woman, a glossy magazine whose employees are all thin, rich and beautiful. New to London and desperate to succeed, Dora is drawn into a whirl of launches and parties where she meets a striking young man named Guy Boleyn.
Follow Dora as she navigates her way through a maze of jealous colleagues, weddings that don’t exactly go to plan and a destructive family secret – all to try and find the fairytale ending she’s always hoped for.
One Apple Tasted is set between 1980s London, 1950s in the Shires and a breathtaking trip to Himalayan India. Part family saga, part classic love story, part coming of age tale, it is a perfect holiday read.
One Apple Tasted is by far the best-written new romantic comedy I’ve read this year
- Amanda Craig
Compelling, original, cleverly plotted and funny, One Apple Tasted reads like a Virago Modern Classic
- Isabel Wolff
Delicious froth combines with wit and insight in this romantic comedy of manners…There is a warmth and pathos in the writing and some wonderful insights and mixed with all the fun this makes for a lovely novel.
