‘Top Five: Women on the Run’ for We Love This Book

‘In my latest novel Flight, a happily married young mother wins the lottery – and runs away. Wren simply disappears, giving up her old connected life in favour of a new solitary one on the coast of North Cornwall. What she seeks, ultimately, is peace; peace, freedom, quiet, space to be alone… Haven’t we all felt this desire at some time or other?’

Isabel Ashdown selects her ‘Top Five: Women on the Run’ in fiction in a feature for We Love This Book.
