FLIGHT ISABEL ASHDOWN

When Wren Irving’s numbers come up in the first ever national lottery draw, she doesn’t tell her husband, Rob. Instead she quietly packs her bags, kisses her six-month-old daughter Phoebe goodbye, and leaves.
Two decades later, Rob has moved on and found happiness with their oldest friend, Laura. Phoebe, now a young woman, has never known any other life. But when Rob receives a mysterious letter, the past comes back to haunt them all. With their cosy world thrown into turmoil, Laura sets out to track Wren down and discover the truth about why she walked out all those years ago.
Moving between the majestic coastline of North Cornwall and the leafy suburbs of London, Flight is a story of secrets and lies – and of the indelible traces that are left behind when someone tries to disappear.
MY REVIEW
Isabel goes from strength to strength with each novel that she writes. What stands out with this beautiful novel not only is the best ever novel that Isabel has written to date, but this novel is a thoughtful novel with a difficult theme.
A complicate entanglement happens when Wren Irving’s numbers come up in the first National Lottery draw, she doesn’t tell her husband, Rob. Instead she quietly packs her bags, kisses her six-month-old daughter Phoebe goodbye, and leaves. Two decades later, Rob has moved on and found happiness with their oldest friend Laura.
But when a journalist is doing some research uncovering all the lottery winners and asks Laura about Wren’s connection with her lottery win, Laura explains to him that Wren no longer lives at this address. The journalist presses on to Laura and wants to know Wren’s last movements and enquired if Wren has been reported missing or if she is dead or alive.
Will Mark Wood the journalist be able to trace where Wren moved to after winning the lottery? And will Rob find out why Wren left him and their daughter. Flight is a story that is full of secrets and lies
