Friday, April 7th at 7pm
Please join us for an evening with Lisa Manterfield to discuss her new book.
Kat Richardson isn’t running away from grief; she’s just hiding out in a gloomy Welsh university town until she’s sure it’s gone. Now, two years, nine months, and 27 days after the death of her first love, Gabe, she thinks she’s ready to venture out into the relationship world again. And Owen—a cake baking, Super Ball making chemistry student—appears to be a kind, funny, and very attractive option.
But the arrival of Kat’s newly adopted niece, Mai, forces her home to northern England, where she runs headfirst into all the memories of Gabe she’s tried to leave behind—and discovers that Mai stirs up an unnerving feeling of déjà vu. Before long, Kat’s logical, scientific beliefs about life after death are in battle with what she feels to be true—that reincarnation is real and Gabe has come back to her through Mai. The question now, is why?
