Title: MARIA IN THE MOON
Author: Louise Beech
Publisher: Orenda Books
Publication Date: August 15th, 2017
Long ago my beloved Nanny Eve chose my name. Then one day she stopped calling me it. I try now to remember why, but I just can’t.’
Thirty-one-year-old Catherine Hope has a great memory. But she can’t remember everything. She can’t remember her ninth year. She can’t remember when her insomnia started. And she can’t remember why everyone stopped calling her Catherine-Maria. With a promiscuous past, and licking her wounds after a painful breakup, Catherine wonders why she resists anything approaching real love.
But when she loses her home to the deluge of 2007 and volunteers at Flood Crisis, a devastating memory emerges … and changes everything. Dark, poignant and deeply moving, Maria in the Moon is an examination of the nature of memory and truth, and the defences we build to protect ourselves, when we can no longer hide…
As much as I love to read crime fiction, I do like to change it out from time and time and venture into horror, romance, YA…just something different. Orenda Books don’t just produce great crime fiction.
Louise Beech is a great writer and her previous novel; THE MOUNTAIN IN MY SHOE received nothing but great reviews so I am more than keen to get stuck into her new novel (which of course has already received fantastic reviews and has been tipped in some press as their top reads for September!)
