Round Robin

By Lesley Hayes

Literary fiction, General fiction | Paperback, eBook


On a deceptively peaceful morning in rural Oxfordshire, a bolt from the blue splinters the surface of Robin’s familiar world and pitches him into uncertainty. By the end of the summer holidays, he will be eleven, and until now has been looking forward to starting secondary school in September. But a much greater change than he could have imagined is on the horizon. In one way or another, Robin affects everyone. His own future hangs in the balance, and is largely dependent on other people’s choices on his behalf. Wise, poignant, thought-provoking and at times even mordantly funny, "Round Robin" will move you and stay with you long after the final chapters...



Lesley Hayes lives in Oxford, UK, and before becoming a psychotherapist she was regularly published in literary and women's magazines, and for two years had a weekly slot on BBC Radio Oxford reading her short stories. Her long and successful career as a psychotherapist over the ensuing years took her away from fiction writing, but was a fork in the road she never once regretted, and she used many of same creative skills and insights. During the past seven years she has given in gracefully to the compelling urge to write fiction again, and has so far published five novels: 'The Drowned Phoenician Sailor', 'A Field Beyond Time', 'Round Robin', 'Dangerous People' and 'The Other Twin'. All are available on kindle and in paperback. Additionally, four collections of short stories have been published on kindle: 'Oxford Marmalade', 'The Oscar Dossier', 'Without a Safety Net', and the aptly named 'Not Like Other People.' 'Through a Glass Darkly' is a compilation of her short stories published in paperback. As you might expect, now that the genie has once again escaped from the bottle, more will soon follow.
