Wild Surmise

by Dorothy Porter

Alex Leefson is astronomy’s glamour girl, in love with the satellite Europa and the equally unreachable Phoebe. Meanwhile, her husband Daniel mourns the demise of his marriage and his life.

Full of Dorothy Porter’s customary bite and sensuality, Wild Surmise is an intensely moving verse novel of passions and vulnerabilities, love and death.
