White Villa

What happens when you invite an outsider in?

A compelling and thought-provoking new novel from the author of bestseller The Privileged

Two weeks in White Villa, under the scorching Ibiza sun, is the last chance for a group of university friends to cut loose before they embark on their adult lives. But when Jennifer invites an outsider, the aloof and beautiful Natasha, tensions begin to simmer.
The days pass amid the sweltering rays, and dissolve into wild, humid nights. And Natasha, reckless after the recent death of her beloved father, seems bent upon a path of destruction, leading her to Jennifer’s boyfriend, Todd – while Jennifer and the rest of the group look on . . .
Then, one hazy afternoon, paradise is shattered.
Ten years later, the friends reunite. Will the secrets between them still have the power to hurt?

Reviews

Praise for Emily Hourican
:
[A] lively and entertaining saga of friendship, family and fate
Sunday Independent
[Hourican] has perfected the high-wire feat between lush description and keeping the plot shuttling along at a pleasing pace ... As with most great writing, The Privileged packs plenty of truth and social commentary beneath its story
Irish Independent
You won't be able to put it down
Stellar magazine
Vibrant characters, finely-observed social backdrops and universal themes of love, friendship and survival ... The Privileged is well-written, thoughtful commercial fiction that tells a compelling story ... A Circle of Friends for the 21st century
Irish Times
