The whispered voices and unsettling dreams were puzzling enough, but when the visions began, disquiet crept into Sarah Richards heart.
Living a joyless and unfulfilled existence, Sarah’s life, however, is ordered and routine. But one autumn morning she sees a figure waving to her, the figure of a man more ghostly than real.
Several times he appears, but is the spectre harmless, or are his intentions malevolent?
Disturbed and intrigued, Sarah endeavours to understand the mystery, to identify her unknown stalker.
But with each visitation, she becomes ever more bewildered, and as her ordered life begins to unravel, she questions the reality of all that she knows, and with mounting horror, even her own sanity.
For a change, I’m not going to give my own synopsis of this book as I don’t want to give anything away! What I will say is that parts of this blew me away!
I was fully sucked in to the mystery that Sarah was trying to unravel, wracking my own brain to try and figure it out and I honestly had no idea when the big twist revealed itself! My favourite part was definitely the first section as it completely had me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next.
I absolutely adored the characters and felt like I got to know them all so well. The different sections of the book will bring out different emotions – I definitely went through intrigue, wonder, hope, despair and happiness! I really enjoyed the way the story was pieced together and how it all unravelled, and didn’t want it to come to an end.
So in summary, I loved this book! If you’re looking for a book that will keep you in suspense for a while, deliver a brilliant twist and then unravel emotionally and beautifully then this is for you. I can’t wait to read the other books in the series so keep an eye out for my reviews over the coming weeks. Highly recommended by me
about the author
R V Biggs lives in a small ex-mining village near Wolverhampton, England, with his wife Julie and Mags the black lab. He has four grown up children and eight grandchildren.
Walking with the dog is a favourite pastime and much of the story line for his first novel was developed during these lengthy outings.
Robert worked for 35 years in telecommunications but changed career paths to a managerial supporting role within a local Mental Health National Health Service trust. It was during the period between these roles that the concept for his first novel was born.
Robert is a firm believer that destiny and co-incidence exist hand in hand and this conviction extends to his writing. He has a passion for holistic well-being and after first-hand experience of the potential healing powers of Reiki, a form of energy therapy, took a Reiki level 1 training course to heighten his spiritual awareness. Robert’s experiences in these areas helped conceive the ideas that led to Song of the Robin and its sequels Reunion and Broken, novels with central themes of fate, love, and the strength of family. His writing is not fantasy however but is set in modern times involving real people living real lives.
