Madeleine Sophie Wickham, also known under the pen name Sophie Kinsella, is an English author. At the age of 24, while working as a financial journalist, Wickham wrote her first novel. The Tennis Party was immediately hailed as a success by critics and the public alike and became a top ten best-seller. She went on to publish six more novels as Madeleine Wickham: A Desirable Residence, Swimming Pool Sunday, The Gatecrasher, The Wedding Girl, Cocktails for Three and Sleeping Arrangements. Wickham's first novel under the pseudonym Sophie Kinsella was submitted to her publishers anonymously and was enthusiastically received. In The Undomestic Goddess, Samantha Sweeting is a lawyer and all her adult life she's had just one ambition. She is desperate to become a partner of the prestigious law firm for whom she works. Just as she's about to achieve this she apparently makes a massive error and runs away from it all. She gets on a train - the first train to anywhere - and finds herself stranded in a Cotswold village. There's a beautiful house nearby and she knocks on the door hoping for a glass of water, but the owner thinks that she's come for an interview for the post of the housekeeper. Desperate for somewhere to stay she accepts the job despite the fact that she can't cook, launder or do anything else remotely domesticated. It's only the charms of the gardener that keep her in the job… You can listen online to free English audiobook “The Undomestic Goddess” by Sophie Kinsella on our website.
