There’s a new book on the horizon for Sara Foster and it’s going to be terrific. I say this, because I’ve read all of Sara’s books and they are all terrific – she has a knack for delivering delivering taut, suspenseful reads bursting with family secrets and hope. I have every confidence that All That is Lost Between Us, due in February 2016, will deliver the same.
Today’s the day of the cover reveal, which the good people at Simon & Schuster Australia and Sara Foster have chosen me to do after a friendly competition between book bloggers. So (imagine me pulling aside a heavy red curtain while Hitchcock-inspired music builds to a climax), here it is:
I like the cover. The vignette-style hints at dark secrets, and the foggy, blurred background suggests uncertainty. It’s a change from the woman on the cover style that has been popular of late. What do you think?
The blurb is equally enticing:
Seventeen-year-old Georgia has a secret – one that is isolating her from everyone she loves. She is desperate to tell her best friend, but Sophia is ignoring her, and she doesn’t know why. And before she can find out, Sophia is left fighting for her life after a hit and run, with Georgia a traumatised witness.
As a school psychologist, Georgia’s mother Anya should be used to dealing with scared adolescents. However, it’s very different when the girl who needs help is your own child. Meanwhile, Georgia’s father is wracked with a guilt he can’t share; and when Zac, Georgia’s younger brother, stumbles on an unlikely truth, the family relationships really begin to unravel.
Georgia’s secret is about to go viral. And yet, it will be the stranger heading for the family home who will leave her running through the countryside into terrible danger. Can the Turner family rise above the lies they have told to betray or protect one another, in order to fight for what matters most of all?
Set against the stark, rugged beauty of England’s Lake District, All That is Lost Between Us is a timeless thriller with a modern twist.
I’ll have a copy of All That is Lost Between Us in my hands in about a week and it’s safe to say it won’t be sitting on the to-read shelf for long. The rest of you will have to wait until February, but you can pre-order the book here.
