The Girl in the Red Coat

(1)

Shortlisted for the 2015 Costa First Novel Award

Eight-year-old Carmel has always been different - sensitive, distracted, with an heartstopping tendency to go missing. Her mother Beth, newly single, worries about her daughter´s strangeness, especially as she is trying to rebuild a life for the two of them on her own.

When she takes Carmel for an outing to a local festival, her worst fear is realised: Carmel disappears into the crowd. Unable to accept the possibility that her daughter might be gone for good, Beth embarks on a mission to find her. Meanwhile, Carmel begins an extraordinary and terrifying journey of her own. But do the real clues to Carmel´s disappearance lie in the otherworldly qualities her mother had only begun to guess at?

„A family ripped apart...“

Fabian Jacob, Thalia-Buchhandlung Soest

When little Carmel Wakefield, 8 years old, and her mother Beth get separated at a festival, a man who claims to be her grandfather promises to keep her safe. But what appears to be an act of kindness and care at first, turns out to be a ruthless abduction. But why?
As her mother starts getting more and more desperate, Carmel finds herself at the beginning of an extraordinary journey.
Beautifully written, somewhat moving and incredibly compelling!
