Synopsis

My warm breath makes a beautiful fog before me. It's times like this when I feel most alive. I feel free, and at one with the world and everything around me. It's an invigorating version of euphoria. But I don't want to arrive home to no one; I want someone to come home to.It's 1995 and 21-year-old Joni Johnson is fresh out of art school and loving her life. Working at Harland, a French restaurant, makes her happy - it's as romantic as she is herself. Harland's owner, Lucy, and chef, Dave, make her evenings both entertaining and complicated. By day, Joni sets up her easel in her backyard bungalow, turns on her music, and paints.But when Joni's best friend, Annabelle, arrives on the doorstep one night ecstatic in love, everything changes. The life Joni has built for herself seems lacklustre in comparison to Annabelle's rising star. And when Annabelle makes a beeline for the one man who seems interested in Joni, it looks unlikely that their friendship will survive.Tender, funny and romantic, Lovesome is a triumph.About the AuthorSally Seltmann is an Australian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. From 2000 to 2009, she used the stage name, New Buffalo. Under that name, she wrote, performed, arranged and produced her debut album in September 2004. Her second album appeared in March 2007. Seltmann and Canadian singer-songwriter Feist co-wrote the song, 1234, which became a Top 10 hit on the United States Billboard Hot 100.
