Publisher's Summary

Set in London and Tuscany, Someone Wonderful casts a magical net around the lives of six people: Grace Teape; her orphaned niece, Lily; her young lover, sculptor Johnny Cochrane; her photographer brother, Oliver Cary; his journalist wife, Melissa; and their blind son, Sebastian. With irony, elegance, and insight, Barbara Neil explores the limits of our capacity to protect our own in this joyous and heartbreaking novel.

Critic Reviews

"Poised, subtle...a Francoise Sagan with an English accent." (Observer)
"A rare treat: skillful writing and a story that reads deliciously." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Something wonderful indeed is this story of a young woman's growth into love and maturity. Neil writes with grace and heart, and not a whit of sentimentality." (Publishers Weekly)
