    Maggie Allder(Author)
Prolific political author, Maggie Allder, returns with her latest novel Living with the Leopard. Following on from Courting Rendition (Matador, 2015), Maggie combines political awareness, adventure and a profound but non-dogmatic spirituality as we follow the story of a newly married couple.Life looks promising for Carrie and Tom even though they belong to a religious organisation deemed 'extremist' by the right-wing government of their day. They belong in a stable community and are, to some extent, sheltered from the poverty and discrimination which surrounds them. However, all that changes when the couple are invited to take part in activities to help the hungry-activities considered subversive by those in authority. Soon, they find themselves out of their depth, subject to a raid from the dreaded ATTF (Anti-Terrorist Task Force). They find themselves involved in the 'overground', the escape route organised to help dissidents to get away and go on to shelter a wanted person in their own home. The situation worsens when Carrie becomes ill and is threatened with total benefit cuts because her behaviour is considered feckless, and the couple can no longer tell whom within their community they can trust. Their faith is challenged and their marriage is threatened by the stress. Eventually, escape seems to be the only option, but they need to get away and take a gamble on who they can trust...This book will appeal to those who enjoy political and suspense fiction as well as fans of Maggie's previous work.

Maggie Allder grew up in Cambridgeshire and studied in Winchester, Richmond Virginia and Reading, and taught for 36 years. Maggie is a Quaker and a volunteer for the non-profit 'Human Writes', which befriends prisoners on American death rows through letter writing.

Review Text

  • By Mrs. G. Smith on 16 January 2017

    I really enjoy Maggie's second book and found it quite gripping. I felt Maggie's writing style has developed impressively and made this an easy book to read, but not too light. There is plenty to cause you to think about our own future, and part of the content led me to increase my own quiet contemplation times and, I think, be more aware of what's going on in the world around us.I'm looking forward to the third book - keep them coming, Maggie!

    A great follow-up to Courting Rendition and in my opinion even better. The tension is there right up to the end. Will they won't they?
