This is a startlingly original book with a most unlikely premise. Grace and her daughter Jenny are in intensive care in hospital after a fire at the local private school. Grace has suffered a terrible head injury; Jenny has been badly burnt. But a motherís love knows no limitations so Jenny and Grace transcend their broken bodies to try to find out why the school was set alight and to try to heal each other. Part magic realism, part mystery - this is a gripping and powerful read and one that will keep you turning the pages right to the very end. Highly recommended - even though you have to take a leap of faith.
