Description of this Book

Six women, one aim and the stories they never told. Each week, six women of different ages and from varying backgrounds come together at The Bluebell Inn. They form an unlikely and occasionally triumphant, ladies darts team, but it is there hidden stories of love and loss that in the end binds them. There is the Irish widow with a heartbreaking secret; the young daughter of a gypsy family experiencing love for the first time; a cat woman alone with her memories who must return to the place of her birth before it's all too late. Their unspoken stories are ones of heartache, dull marriages, abusive relationships, lost loves and secret hopes. These displaced women know little of each other's lives, but their weekly meetings at their local pub weave a delicate and sustaining connection between them all, a constant that maybe they can rely on as the crossroads in their individual lives threaten to overwhelm. Raw, funny and devastating, all of life can be found at the Bluebell.

Author's Bio

Kit Fielding was born to a large family in the late forties. His father took agricultural work to provide for them all and they moved often, in part due to Kit's mother who found it difficult to settle for any length of time, a legacy from her traveller roots. Kit left school at 15 to help earn money for the family. He took on various labouring jobs. He's now happily married, but still struggles with restlessness; he lives in a caravan somewhere by the sea.
