This week, we’re excited to be giving away Space Hopper – the debut novel from UK author Helen Fisher and a book that legendary author Marian Keyes describes as “an unusual intriguing novel… the first in ages that actually *interested* me”. So, what’s got Marian all excited? Why has it been dubbed the most extraordinary debut of 2021? Here’s the synopsis:
This is a story about taking a leap of faith.
And believing the unbelievable.
They say those we love never truly leave us, and I’ve found that to be true. But not in the way you might expect. In fact, none of this is what you’d expect. I’ve been visiting my mother who died when I was eight. And I’m talking about flesh and blood, tea-and-biscuits-on-the-table visiting here.
Right now, you probably think I’m going mad. Let me explain…
Although Faye is happy with her life, the loss of her mother as a child weighs on her mind even more now that she is a mother herself. So she is amazed when, in an extraordinary turn of events, she finds herself back in her childhood home in the 1970s. Faced with the chance to finally seek answers to her questions – but away from her own family – how much is she willing to give up for another moment with her mother?
Space Hopper is an original and poignant story about mothers, memories and moments that shape life.
Keen to read more? We have three copies to be won, and all you need to do is tell us, in 25 words or fewer, someone from YOUR past that you’d like to share another moment with (and why). Our favourite three answers will WIN a copy of the book.
