In 'Thrown', the debut novel from broadcaster Sara Cox, the assorted neighbours of The Inventor's Housing Estate keep themselves to themselves. However, when Becky helps set up a pottery class, it's a fresh start - not just for her - but for the whole community. They come together to try out a new skill under the watchful eye of their charismatic teacher, Sasha. And as the soft unremarkable lumps of clay are hesitantly, lovingly moulded into delicate vases and majestic pots, so too are the lives of four women. Concealed passions and heartaches are uncovered, relationships shattered and formed, and the possibility for transformation is revealed.
