Meet Dora Jerusalem, features assistant to the assistant features editor at Modern Woman, a fashionable glossy staffed by glamorous girls and clever boys. Catapulted into 1980s London and desperate to succeed, Dora is drawn into a whirl of parties where she meets Guy Boleyn, louche and gorgeous - but from a very different world.
Follow the ever-optimistic Dora as she navigates her way through a maze of jealous frenemies, family secrets, weddings that don't exactly go to plan and a heritage of passion and drama - trying to reach that elusive fairytale ending.
Kicking off in 1980s London, and moving between 1950s Home Counties and WWII, by way of a breathtaking trip to Himalayan India, Josa Young perfectly captures the tone of each era, to paint a touchingly accurate portrait of a young woman with old-fashioned ideas struggling towards happiness.
On its release, One Apple Tasted was described by the Independent newspaper as 'an entertaining and charming romance about love, sex and the upper middle classes behaving badly'.
Good luck and always glad to have your feedback....more
