The Power of Women

(1997)
A novel by

 
 
Redundant Sam Dawson and the very much unemployed Tim Bonner have dreams of being millionaires. Not yet strictly men of leisure, they feel entitled to enjoy at least some of life's indulgences - like a round of golf and a pint. The cost of living is cheaper in the West Country after all.

Janice Dawson also has her daily round - a host of small jobs that earn her enough money to keep her family afloat. But Janice has had enough. Drowning her sorrows in her cooking sherry, she hits on a novel idea - a foolproof get-rich-quick-scheme - for Sam.

Meanwhile, Beverley Callard, the not so proud mother of Tim's three-year-old daughter, is also resolving to try her man's luck. Tim's latest crazy idea is going to materialize - or else.

Never underestimate the power of women. Before the men know what has hit them, they find themselves whisked from the fairway and treading very unfamiliar turf. And as for the women - well, they've never had them so good.

"Splendid entertainment... Comic novelists as riotous and eccentric as Guy Bellamy don't grow on trees."
Mail on Sunday

"Laugh and relax and escape into a delightful scam told with humour and style."
Daily Express
