THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER 'Feel-good and uplifting, this
charming novel is full of heart' LUCY DIAMOND 'Tender,
thought-provoking and uplifting' DAILY MAILMeet Rosemary, 86, and
Kate, 26: dreamers, campaigners, outdoor swimmers... Rosemary has
lived in Brixton all her life, but everything she knows is
changing. Only the local lido, where she swims every day, remains a
constant reminder of the past and her beloved husband George. Kate
has just moved and feels adrift in a city that is too big for her.
She's on the bottom rung of her career as a local journalist, and
is determined to make something of it. So when the lido is
threatened with closure, Kate knows this story could be her chance
to shine. But for Rosemary, it could be the end of everything.
Together they are determined to make a stand, and to prove that the
pool is more than just a place to swim - it is the heart of the
community. The Lido is an uplifting novel about the importance of
friendship, the value of community, and how ordinary people can
protect the things they love. 'A standout hymn to female friendship
and the power of collective action' STYLIST 'Did I #lovethelido? So
