Newly revised AND with a taster for my upcoming book, ‘The Baize Door’!
Fleeing to the countryside from London to escape another bad relationship, Clare hopes to make yet another new start that will finally sort out her life. She finds things aren’t so simple as her best friend Sylvie is abroad leaving Clare to share the house with enigmatic and moody Alex. Clare soon finds work and a new livelihood but still finds that all her relationships with men seem doomed to failure. Alongside the tale of Clare’s new life runs the story of Tom’s troubled childhood and adolescence. Set in the 1990s, before widespread use of Mobiles and the Internet, ‘Tom’ is not only a sinister tale of lost identity, possession and mental illness but also a journey to fulfillment and love as lives are changed, healed and restored.
