Blanca has been dead for a few centuries when she falls in love – instantly and devotedly – with celebrated novelist George Sand. George is unlike anyone Blanca has encountered in hundreds of years of haunting: a woman dressed in men’s clothes, a ferocious writer, a passionate lover of men and women alike and an ambivalent mother.

It is 1838, and George has come to the island of Mallorca with her ailing lover, Frédéric Chopin. As the weather and the locals turn against this strange couple, can the love of a teenage ghost keep them from disaster?

Briefly, A Delicious Life is a story about breaking convention, and about love – yearning, secret, forbidden, unrequited.

'Dazzling' Melissa Broder, author of The Pisces and Milk Fed

‘A luscious, multi-sensory bewitchment of a book’ Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Mercies.
