Spelling Mississippi

Marnie Woodrow

Madeleine and Cleo have first to meet - you would not believe how often they just miss each other - and then to sort out some serious family problems before the course of true love can run smooth. An enjoyable love story with welcome touches of surrealism (or truth?)
