Beschreibung

What would you do if life suddenly flipped upside down? Where would you go if your world fell apart? Who would you turn to? When her son Calum dies in a car crash, Alison is left stunned and dazed. But instead of turning to those around her for comfort, she impulsively leaves them behind, desperate to hide from her loss. Even in death, though, Calum has a way of pushing her, making her do things she would never normally have done. And soon his memory starts to transform her in unimaginable ways. And then theres Neal, happily married to Sally, who till Calum's funeral is unaware he's still carrying a torch for Alison. He was the man Calum called dad, but wasn't. Alison has forgotten Neal, but he cannot forget her. If I Touched the Earth is a warm and compelling novel, delicately weaving a powerful story about lifes many unexpected moments and the ways in which these events can change our paths forever.

Her previous books include Loveletter from my Death Bed, Upstairs in the Tent and A Dangerous Place.

Klappentext

In the few seconds after the crash, something strange happens. There's a sudden change in the atmosphere of the material world. And in nearby Evanton the light flattens so anything unbeautiful becomes sinister and pretty things seem slightly surreal.

When Alison Ross loses her son Calum in a car crash, her world turns upside down. In her struggle to cope, she does some strange and uncharacteristic things - starting with a one-night stand with her ex-best friend, Neal - and sets in motion a chain of events that will lead her on a journey she could never have imagined.

If I Touched the Earth is a warm and compelling novel, delicately weaving a powerful story about life's unexpected moments and the ways in which these events can change our paths forever.

REVIEWS:

"Cynthia Rogerson penetrates the complexities of the human heart with this wise, true and tender novel. The way she navigates us through the uncertain landscapes of love and grief is both profoundly affecting and joyously comforting, proving Rogerson to be nothing less than Scotland's very own Anne Tyler."
ALAN BISSETT

"Cynthia Rogerson's intelligent and patient novel follows hard on the heels of Sue Peebles equally excellent prizewinning novel The Death of Lomond Friel."
THE SCOTSMAN

"Handled with wit, tenderness and sureness of language. Original and accomplished."
ANNE DONOVAN
