THE GIRL IN THE RED COAT BY KATE HAMER

 

MISSING

Carmel Wakeford, 8-year-old girl,

last seen wearing a red coat.

 

 Carmel Wakeford becomes separated from her mother at a local children’s festival, and is found by a man who claims to be her estranged grandfather.
He tells her that her mother has had an accident and that she is to live with him for now. As days become weeks with her new family,  Carmel realises that this man believes she has a special gift, that she is potentially a saviour.
While her mother desperately tries to find her, Carmel embarks on an extraordinary journey, one that will make her question who she is – and who she might become.
My review
I think Kate Hamer is a fantastic new talented author. It takes a lot of time for an author to write a book and send the manuscript away to an editor to either be edited or accepted. It is really hard to write a book. I appreciate all of Kate Hamer’s hard work. I loved the mix of story line through out The Girl in the Red Coat.
It is every mothers night mare when a child goes missing. Eight year-old Carmel Wakeford the girl in the red coat becomes separated from her mother while at a children’s festival. A man who claims to be her estranged grandfather finds Carmel taking her home with telling lies to Carmel that her mother has had an accident and that Carmel is to stay with him. The story builds up through Carmel’s life living with her grandfather. I found myself wrapped up far into the story when Carmel realises that she has a very special gift.
I hope that Kate Hamer will be writing more novels.
