‘It was the exact same shocking sound a body makes when it hits a car screen...but it was only the thud of her fist on the glass, her knuckles pressed white against it.’
A charismatic hitchhiker haunted by a shameful secret. A flawed man who is no stranger to life’s burdens of loss and guilt. When they collide on a road trip to Scotland, Jamie is mesmerised by the volatile, alluring Katy, until the darkness that spills from the core of his new companion moves from her life to his own, and threatens to overturn it entirely.
Loss is a compelling and highly charged love story that uses the evocative backdrop of the Scottish Highlands to explore the redemptive power of relationships and the limits of humanity against a chilling backdrop of mystery and suspense.
'The book contained so many beautiful and vivid descriptive passages...The author's vivid descriptions of the scenery easily pull the reader into the time and place of the story…Beautifully written.’ International Review of Books.
‘Absorbing, elegantly written, and plenty to think about after reading … Lightbourne has achieved a satisfying balance between honesty and compassion in this clear-eyed look at love, loss, guilt and the capacity of humans to rebuild.’ Jill Murphy, The Bookbag.
Lightbourne keeps the plot progression nicely one step ahead of the reader so tension and a little bit of mystery are retained ... and has achieved a satisfying balance between honesty and compassion in this clear-eyed look at love, loss, guilt and the capacity of humans to rebuild.'
