Almost Strangers: A Novel free pdf From a talented short story writer- a penetrating first novel about the lives of two very different women exploring the natures of fate and morality, love and survival. When her mother dies, forty-two-year-old Ursula Gant is left shattered. Cocooning herself in grief, Ursula retreats behind a literal wall of beloved books. But not even the fictional barricade can safeguard her from a spell of hallucinations. When the wall collapses, Ursula bolts to the airport, abandoning her lover Daniel. Meanwhile, Daniel's wife Cissy, a fading beauty queen, is tormented by a different sort of loss. Devastated by her husband's betrayal, Cissy boards a plane to Athens- the same plane Ursala is on. The plane crashes. In the aftermath, one of Daniel's two fleeing women disappears- her body is never recovered. The other, horribly burned, regains consciousness. But without any memory, and with an unrecogisable face, she ventures into the world alone, unloved and unknowable.
