The Portuguese House


After being badly let down by her husband, writer Liz O’Malley takes a holiday in Goa, in India. To her surprise she falls in love with the place, the people and an old, somewhat derelict, Portuguese house. To her sister’s equal surprise she buys the house and employs local people to return it to its former impressive glory.  

At a social event she meets the widowed British Ambassador and there is a definite frisson. The beginning of a romance is shattered when one of his two sons is taken ill. The situation is further complicated when the Ambassador moves to Paris, and a wealthy German divorcee targets him for her next marriage. 

Meanwhile Liz is offered a book tour of the United States and has further adventures there, accompanied by an extremely lively P.R. from her publishing house. But will it be possible for her romance to be re-kindled, and will she find happiness in her new home in the Portuguese house?

Pamela D Holloway

Pamela spent her early years in Warwickshire and later was on the staff of the Bank of England.

Married life proved quite challenging firstly as the wife of an army officer who subsequently became an international company director and finally, an Anglican Minister. She laughingly said it was like having three different husbands.

Writing has always been part of her life and whilst abroad she published a number of short stories and poetry before she was finally encouraged by a family member to find a publisher for her novels. She has published two novels with a third due out in November 2018 and a fourth in 2019. Others, including an illustrated children's book, are in the pipeline.
