Unexpected Companions: The Ordinary & Inspiring Collide in a Supernatural Tale of Three Incredible Women
“Nicole Stout’s debut novel ‘Unexpected Companions’ is a bold and profound take on family histories”
“A haunting and suspenseful story of three women who broke social rules to realise their dreams.
“A unique piece that takes the reader across continents and through history.”
Amy, Lotty and Winifred were three ordinary women who achieved successes that defied the social conventions of their time. United after death as spiritual guides, they must use their experiences to help a living descendent, Eleanor Hardwick, face her own battles.
But not everyone is who they claim to be and, over dinner, secrets – hidden throughout their lives – threaten to be revealed.
Based on the lives of three family members, Nicole Stout weaves their stories with mythology and folklore to explore the dynamics of family, relationships and the inner strength needed to follow dreams.
