Publisher's Summary

Dulcie Ballantyne knows that creative writers’ groups attract an unlikely bunch of people, so when she starts up Hidden Talents, she is well prepared for the assortment of people she is bringing together. But what they all have in common is a need to escape, as well as a desire to keep their lives as private as possible - even Dulcie, who at the age of 63 has been having an affair with a married man for three years. As they grow more confident in their writing skills, friendships develop and gradually they come to realise that a little openness isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

What other book might you compare Hidden Talents to, and why?

I seem to think that they remind me of Maeve Binchy's which is perhaps why I like them so much as she was a favourite if mine. A loss to the literary world .

Dulce and Jasmine
