The Other Hand (Chris Cleave)

“We don’t want to tell you what happens in this book. It is a truly special story and we don’t want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know enough to buy [or borrow!] it so we will just say this: This is the story of two women. Their lives collide one fateful day, and one of them has to make a terrible choice. Two years later, they meet again — the story starts there…Once you have read it, you’ll want to tell your friends about it. When you do, please don’t tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds. ‘Totally believable.’ — Daily Express ‘It would be hard not to romp through it.’ — Financial Times ‘Impresses as a feat of literary engineering…the plot exerts a fearsome grip.’ — Telegraph   Nielsen Book Data Online

Mrs Bailey at Kings Campus says:

“Story about a Female refugee, written by a man ( you would never know!!!) Extremely well written book and very thought provoking! Compelling reading. 4 stars.”

Mmmm, perhaps we should take a look, I’ve never read Chris Cleave before…
