Have been hiding out from computers, reading a lot and catching up on a lot of nothing in the lead up to returning to work tomorrow. So a catchup on the reading list before then.
From the Blurb:
Once upon a time, there was a little girl who believed in fairytales. Now she is out to get your happy ending.
One day changes Jody's life forever.
She has shut herself down, haunted by her memories and unable to trust anyone. But then she meets Abe, the perfect stranger next door and suddenly life seems full of possibility and hope.
One day changes Mags' life forever.
After years of estrangement from her family, Mags receives a shocking phone call. Her brother Abe is in hospital and no-one knows what happened to him. She meets his fiance Jody, and gradually pieces together the ruins of the life she left behind.
But the pieces don't quite seem to fit...
Mags had been estranged from her brother Abe at the time of his accident. Their separation wasn’t due to having had a falling out; it was more that their lives had moved in very different directions. Confident Mags had followed her legal career to the U.S. and Abe, as Mags found out, had been content in his carer’s job and in creating a quieter life for himself that was far away from the memories of their horrific childhood. Mags does not accept that Abe tried to commit suicide by pitching himself off the building’s stairs. He had a fiancé, colleagues, and purpose. Moving into the atmospheric church complex herself, Mags extends her stay and slowly begins to find out who her brother had really been.
