THE MOUNTAIN IN MY SHOE LOUISE BEECH

Published in paperback 30th October 2016

A missing boy. A missing book. A missing husband. A woman who must find them all to find herself.
On the night Bernadette finally has the courage to tell her domineering husband that she’s leaving, he doesn’t come home. Neither does Conor, the little boy she’s befriended for the past five years. Also missing is his lifebook, the only thing that holds the answers. Bernadette must face her own past, her husband’s secrets and a future she never dared imagine in order to find them all.
Exquisitely written and deeply touching, The Mountain in My Shoe is both a gripping psychological thriller and a powerful and emotive examination of the meaning of family …and just how far we’re willing to go for the people we love.
MY REVIEW
After reading 8 pages in the book of the praise for Louise Beech, I must add that I agree with everyone. Louise has taken extreme care with this rich psychologically novel and with observation. I found that I really cared about the characters. A missing boy. A missing book. A missing husband. A woman who must find them all to find herself. Bernadette’s friend Shannon set up a blind date for her. Richard is apparently an equally shy and sensitive friend of Shannon’s. The perfect match for Bernadette. But after ten years of marriage Bernadette is planning to leave Richard. He gets angry and rants. He was controlling. Bernadette wonders why her husband has failed to come home. Clues. Did Bernadette miss any? We’re there signs that Richard wouldn’t come home. Highly recommended!
