Charity Norman - After the Fall

review written by Maggie Perkovic & read live on the bookshow 6th Nov 2014
This is the story of a family that decided to emigrate to New Zealand after the
husband's business venture goes bust. Everyone is happy with the idea,the twin boys
of five very excited and the parents are looking forward to a new life and a better
life style. Sadly, the teenage daughter hates the idea, she has a boy friend and a
good social life at her college and has no enthusiasm for the move.
However they go and seem to settle down well with even the teenager making new
friends and the husband starting to paint with great success . But a cloud is approaching
this nice family and when the book opens, one of the twins has fallen from a balcony
in their isolated house miles from anywhere. He is taken to hospital where his life
hangs by a thread and suspicions arise as to how the accident happened. This
is a page turner and when the truth is revealed at the end it is quite shocking.
Highly recommended I loved it!!!Maggie Perkovic.
