The Travelling Hornplayer by Barbara Trapido

An easy read about a novelist and his small family, particularly his dysfunctional daughter, Stella. The book is about Stella's gradual unravelling as she struggles to settle at University and after her second year ends up unsettled, seriously ill, pregnant and single. The novel is written from different character's points of view and particularly focuses on Stella's father and his relationship with his daughter. Enjoyable and interesting but not especially challenging.
