Description

A missing boy. A missing book. A missing husband. A woman who must find them all to find herself. On the night Bernadette finally has the courage to tell her domineering husband that she's leaving, he doesn't come home. Neither does Conor, the little boy she's befriended for the past five years. Also missing is his lifebook, the only thing that holds the answers. With the help of Conor's foster mum, Bernadette must face her own past, her husband's secrets and a future she never dared imagine in order to find them all. Exquisitely written and deeply touching, The Mountain in My Shoe is both a gripping psychological thriller and a powerful and emotive examination of the meaning of family ... and just how far we're willing to go for the people we love. `Deft and full of emotions' Irish Times `It is a brilliantly creative work of fiction' We Love this Book (The Bookseller) `A fabulous, exquisitely written novel that tugs at the soul ... incredibly moving' David Young `Full of beautiful descriptions, images and observations ... hauntingly poignant, with a relentless tension and pace' Katie Marsh `A moving and powerful book' Jane Lythell `A rich, psychologically profound novel about overcoming adversity ... It's a masterpiece' Gill Paul `Dark, compelling and highly thought-provoking ... a fascinating page-turner that wrenches at your insides' Off-the-Shelf Books `A wonderful, nuanced book probing the damages wreaked by absence and neglect, while exploring the power of love and hope ... and what it means to be truly "home". It made me laugh and cry by turns. I loved it' Melissa Bailey
