HOW CAN A MEMORY SO VIVID BE WRONG?
In the summer of 1986, Robin and Izzie hold hands under The Faerie Tree and wish for a future together. Within hours tragedy rips their dreams apart.
In the winter of 2006, each carrying their own burden of grief, they stumble back into each other’s lives and try to create a second chance. But why are their memories of 1986 so different? And which one of them is right?
With strong themes of memory, love and grief, The Faerie Tree is a novel as gripping and unputdownable as Jane Cables first book, The Cheesemaker’s House, which won the Suspense & Crime category of The Alan Titchmarsh Shows Peoples Novelist competition. It is a story that will resonate with fans of romance, suspense, and folklore.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
Complex, emotional and honest, ‘This story explores family, love and life. Izzie and Robin meet by chance and both feel it’s the start of something. Then fate steps in and they lose touch, meeting again twenty years later. Is this their second chance? Told from Izzy and Robin’s point of view, the story explores what happens after their first meeting and why they are the people they became.
The emotional journey is poignant and painful, and the conflicts that arise in the present seem insurmountable. With a balanced and believable cast of characters, a plot with surprising twists and an extraordinary love story this book absorbs, engages and resonates.
Jane Cable writes romantic fiction with the over-riding theme that the past is never dead. She published her first two books independently (the multi-award-winning The Cheesemaker’s House and The Faerie Tree) and is now signed by Sapere Books. Two years ago she moved to Cornwall to concentrate on her writing full time but struggles a little in such a beautiful location. Luckily she’s discovered the joys of the plot walk.
