Trapeze Flies in for Gorman's StaycationTrapeze has snapped up a new novel from Michele Gorman about two families who swap houses when volcanic ash cancels their flights.
Commissioning editor Katie Brown acquired world rights for The Staycation from Caroline Hardman at Hardman & Swainson, for publication in summer 2020.
The synopsis says: "Things get desperate for strangers Harriet and Sophie when they become stranded with their families in Heathrow’s Terminal 5. Each woman has her own reason for really, really, really needing the family holiday they’ve anticipated for months. But Iceland’s volcano has other plans for them. When their flights are cancelled, the families swap houses and discover that sometimes the best things in life happen close to home. This ash cloud has a silver lining, even if no one can quite see it yet."
