Beth Jenkins is a young locum doctor and prides herself on helping her patients reframe the story of their lives - nudging them towards more optimistic narratives - but her own story is stuck. Her husband has had a stroke, disastrously altering his personality, and she's trapped in a life of duty and loneliness. Beth is semi-bereaved and will be for decades. On the other hand she knows, in theory, that there are millions of lives possible to live. Could it be that, by a quirk of fate, she's in the wrong life? Should she flee, make a new start? It would have to be somewhere far away, somewhere so out of the way and hazardous that no one would risk looking for her - somewhere like Zimbabwe, where she might find the person (part real, part fantasy) she's named Safari Man. But she has a career, of sorts, has responsibilities and she's twenty-eight-and-a-half - far too old to run away from home. Then she comes across a poem: 'The day comes when they have to declare the great Yes.' She makes her choice... Fortunate is an intelligent, moving and often humorous novel with a gripping plot about lost and re-found love, our relationship to the land we live on, and of how to defy fate. It will appeal to lovers of contemporary fiction, lovers of stories set in Africa, lovers of romance and adventure and lovers of a good read.Andrew has been inspired by a number of authors, including Cormac McCarthy, Michael Cunningham, Arundhati Roy, Anne Tyler and Sebastian Faulks.
