One house. Nine strangers. Ten days that will change everything . . .
The retreat at health-and-wellness resort Tranquillum House promises total transformation.
Nine stressed city dwellers are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage, and absorb the meditative ambience while enjoying their hot stone massages.
Miles from anywhere, without cars or phones, they have no way to reach the outside world. Just time to think about themselves, and get to know each other.
Watching over them is the resort’s director, a woman on a mission. But quite a different one from any the guests might have imagined.
For behind the retreat’s glamorous facade lies a dark agenda.
These nine perfect strangers have no idea what’s about to hit them . . .
I have to give this one 5* for pure enjoyment levels. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much at the same time as being made to consider life so much whilst reading a book.
A weirdly wonderful group of utter stranger’s all rock up to a 10 day wellness retreat, all looking for different answers, all hoping to come out the other side all brand new. Well be careful what you wish for is all I’ll say…
This group dynamic is pure dynamite as we slowly get to know this motley crew and their inner selves and life influences. Throw into the mix a fanatical health nut and all bets are off. Nine Perfect Strangers is wildly entertaining, extraordinarily thought provoking and beautifully written. You’ll find your favourite (mine was undoubtedly Francis, a woman after my own heart) and get entirely caught up in their attempts to heal, their growing relationship with each other and the rather unexpected challenges they’ll all face together.
I won’t give too much away but one moment I was snorting tea out of my nose, the next I was shedding a tear – I was all the way in first page to last.
Wonderful storytelling. Highly Recommended.
