Still having problems following a recent complicated dental procedure, but have worked solidly on my last novel, a psychological thriller for young adults, most days. Here the alternative viewpoint character reflects on the events that took place when she was seven:
Next, an untidy garden in Devon where they moved to after Cornwall. Branches swaying in
the wind. Autumn leaves covering the ground. Taking her by the hand, Mum led her through clumps of damp earth and sat her by the garden pond to tell her they were moving again. To Dorset, this time.
Without Dad. Mum told her that Dad had decided to live somewhere else but he would always love her.
So she and Mum moved to a middle floor flat in an old three-storey house that stood back from the road overlooking the coast, and she pined for Dad, crying into her pillow night after night, believing that she had sent him away. Too naughty, maybe?
Meanwhile, my debut novel Secrets by Lawrence Estrey is available from Amazon in paperback and e-book.
