Umjana Land

Gordon is a retired civil servant who devotes his time to writing romantic fiction under the name of Poppy Henshaw. His wife, Leah, s successful publisher, is not aware of his affair with Ursula, their next-door neighbour, until in an argument about a proposed bypass which will destroy the local downland, Ursula reveals the deceit. Meanwhile Gordon remembers Umjana Land, the childhood world he inhabited with his sister Agnes. When Agnes returns from Africa unexpectedly, they relive their surreal childhood dreams, and Gordon tells her of his desire to write something important. Ironically, Agnes has already written a Booker Prize nominated book about Umjana Land. Gordon is left strangely alone as his daughter Abigail, Leah, Ursula and Agnes find a common bond.
