“The author writes with feeling and sensitivity, breathing life into the characters. A gifted writer, who has created images that remain with the reader long after the last page has been read.” Review on Amazon.co.uk
The haunting and beautifully crafted tale of a girl’s feral childhood in 1960s Lancashire and her friend Jack’s search for the missing homeless adult she becomes.
Piecing together diaries, medical notes and media reports, Jack’s quest ultimately leads him to re-examine his own history and abandoned identity.
Powerful and thought-provoking, this debut novel uses unique language and devices to challenge perceptions of homelessness, identity and exclusion in modern society.
