Haunting tale of loss, love and redemption
on 27 June 2013
I couldn't put this book down, and when I finished, it haunted me for weeks afterwards.
This is the story of Nick, whose miraculous escape from a train crash is the beginning of a strange journey towards redemption and self-acceptance. I don’t want to spoil the plot, only to say that it doesn’t go where you expect it to. For anyone who has ever had a serious curve-ball thrown to them by life, this book is for you.
Warning: you may end-up wanting to give everything up and go and live in a ramshackle cottage by the sea in Cornwall by the time you finish this.
