How can you long for someone who doesn't exist?

But what if it is then too late?

THE ADDICTION OF BOOKS  


 

The Road to Donetsk won The People's Book Prize For Fiction 2016.

 

It is 1994 and an idealistic Vanessa Parker enters the world of international aid, bringing with her youth and passion to do good in the ‘Wild East’ of Ukraine after the sudden collapse of communism. The country and its people completely win her heart. As does Dan, a jaded American Deputy Bureau Chief of USAID...

 

"A touching love story that illuminates the aid business. Compelling and enjoyable." 

CLARE SHORT (former Secretary of State for International Development)

 

"Lifts the lid on aid."

LYNN CURTIS, literary consultant

 

"I felt for the characters, their pain, their frustration, and their joy... it had the kind of emotion that keeps me turning the pages of a book long past when I should have put it down."
