Jack and Jill Went Downhill

By R J Gould

This is the story of two young lovers who just happen to be called Jack and Jill.

The pair meet at a freshers party at university and for both of them it’s love at first sight. Despite their backgrounds, personalities and interests being poles apart, the relationship flourishes during their student years. It’s not quite as comfortable when their studies are over and they move to London to start work.

They’d always shared the joke that their names were those of the nursery rhyme. Down the line, they fail to recognise that their lives are matching the plot: Jack falls down, Jill comes tumbling after. Can their relationship survive?

Warm, witty and poignant, Jack and Jill Went Downhill is the story of a love on the rocks. If you love David Nicholls or Sophie Kinsella, you’ll love R J Gould.

R J Gould has worked in schools, universities and for a national educational charity, and has been published in a wide range of educational journals, newspapers and magazines. His first novel, A Street Café Named Desire, was shortlisted for the Joan Hessayon Award.
