Most Helpful Customer Reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars Original and compelling new novel 22 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
This startling novel is about loss, grief and the search for a sense of identity and belonging.

Susannah Bell’s portrait of a family whose abducted child is returned to them after seven years is painfully honest and moving and it is this human element that makes it such a compelling read.

Is the returned child really Claire and where has she been? If she isn’t Claire who is she? Claire’s search for answers whilst struggling with a family desperate for things to be ‘normal’ drives this novel. The startling answers are interwoven cleverly with the parallel story of the lonely hospital porter John Fox until the two lost souls finally meet and the truth is revealed.

The idea of alien abduction isn’t new but it is given a fresh and intriguing spin here and without giving too much away, the final twist at the end is almost heart-breaking.

This is beautifully written and deserves to break down any genre barriers which often put people off reading what is labelled as science fiction.







About susannahjbell

I am a writer of science fiction and other strange and surreal works. I mostly write novels and the occasional novelette. My published works include A Doorway into Ultra, the Fleet Quintet and the Exodus Sequence. I live in London in an attic flat but really want to live in a tree. I wanted to be an astrophysicist but would settle for an alien abduction. I write because I don’t know what to read.
