They say bad luck comes in threes, but this is not the case for Richard in Three Against the World by Sarah Stuart. He is awoken by his beloved dog Ben early one morning, warning of an intruder in his home. This is followed in quick, unforgiving succession with losing his job in the bank and therefore his manipulative, gold-digging fiancée, Bridget. When he feels the situation cannot get any worse, his ex-wife Naomi arrives, announcing he has a fourteen-year-old daughter called Maria. As Richard tries to figure out how to be a proper dad, Maria tries to settle into her first normal loving home. Their situation is further complicated when Maria is the victim of unwanted attention and Bridget is lurking in the background. Richard tries to find romance again, but will he ever find that perfect woman who has a heart and inner beauty to match his?
Three Against the World by Sarah Stuart is a truly heartwarming tale of two lost souls finding each other, and trying to fathom out a sudden father-daughter relationship. The author has a fantastic ability to create rich, three-dimensional characters and dialogue that is both realistic and suited to the character. The storyline flows with the perfect amount of conflict woven throughout, and the ending a complete shock to me, an excellent twist to the story. The scenes throughout were excellently written and transported me into the world of Richard and Maria. Every one of my senses has been touched in reading this book. I would definitely read more from this author, especially a sequel to this book.

Conflict starts at the beginning when Richard's life is about to fall apart, and from then on, the reader follows a man in search of himself and meaning. The narrative is realistic and the plot well-handled. The author has the gift of creating vivid images and focusing on the emotional aspects of the story. Some of the descriptions are terrific like the one in the second paragraph: "The nerve... a dog barking loud enough to rouse a corpse, and somebody was calmly helping himself as if he was shopping in a supermarket." The entire narrative is gorgeous and atmospheric, the prose elegant and arresting.
