Lawrence Fyre, the eccentric owner of failing Sargasso Books in the Brighton Lanes, meets Marin Strang, ex Jehovah’s witness, and isolated Spanish teacher. They fall immediately in love and live, illegally, in his rope laddered, book kingdom – a rusting but colourful lockup on an industrial estate.
'Original, sexy, very funny and deeply moving. An author in complete control of a number of unforgettable characters and emotional highs and lows, Jenny Morton Potts leaves the reader breathless, and wanting more.'
‘Fresh, witty and consistently engaging, Piano from a 4th Storey Window is a roller coaster of emotions which heralds the arrival of a major new talent.’ Britt Pflüger, Hardy & Knox

About the author:
Jenny is a novelist, screenplay writer and playwright. She was born in a smart, dull suburb of Glasgow where the only regular excitement was burglary. Attended a smart, dull school where the only regular excitement was the strap. Worked in smart, dull sales and marketing jobs until realising she was living someone else’s life.
Escaped to Gascony to make gîtes. Knee deep in cement and pregnant, Jenny was happy. Then autism and a distracted spine surgeon who wanted to talk about The Da Vinci Code, wiped out the order. Returned to wonderful England – and unlikely ever to leave again – Jenny, with assistance from loyal hound, walked and swam her way back to manageable health.
Jenny would like to see the Northern Lights but worries that’s the best bit and should be saved till last. Very happily, and gratefully, partnered for 28 years, she ought to mention, and living with inspirational child in Derbyshire.
She tries not to take herself too seriously.
