The Woman Next Door

by Yewande Omotoso - £8.99  Vintage Publishing (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784701376 | ISBN 10: 1784701378

Hortensia and Marion are next door neighbours in a charming, bougainvillea-laden Cape Town suburb.
 
One is black, one white. Both are successful women with impressive careers behind them. Both have recently been widowed. Both are in their eighties. And both are sworn enemies, sharing hedge and hostility pruned with zeal.
 
But one day an unforeseen event forces the women together. Could long-held mutual loathing transform into friendship?
 
Love thy neighbour? Easier said than done.
