I am currently reading Ignoring Gravity by Sandra Danby a book which I came across in excerpt format when I stumbled across the author’s blog. Ignoring Gravity is about to be published on 21 November 2014.
Rose Haldane is confident about her identity. She pulls the same face as her grandfather when she has to do something she doesn’t want to do, she knows her DNA is the same as his. Except it isn’t: because Rose is adopted and doesn’t know it.
‘Ignoring Gravity’ connects two pairs of sisters separated by a generation of secrets. Finding her mother’s lost diaries, Rose begins to understand why she has always seemed the outsider in her family, why she feels so different from her sister Lily. Then just when she thinks there can’t be any more secrets…
This is the first in a series of novels about Rose Haldane, identity detective. Amazon
I recently finished the thought-provoking The Perfect Mother by Nina Darnton which is based upon Emma, an American girl who while studying in Spain is a suspect in the murder of a local boy. Narrated by Jennifer, her mother, this book skilfully describes how she has to realign her image of her daughter to fit the facts of the case. My review will follow shortly.
Next I am going to read The Burning Girl by Lisa Unger ,the second in the three part set of novellas by this author which started with The Whispers.
Ten years after Eloise Montgomery discovers her psychic abilities, she is a full-fledged working psychic, with a partner and a business. Now, in The Burning Girl, she’s discovering some disturbing things: secrets about her genealogy that are, perhaps, best left in the past; that her granddaughter Finley has powers of her own; and that not all of Eloise’s visitors actually want to be helped. Some of them are just looking for trouble…Goodreads
