The Nine-Chambered Heart (Paperback)
'Superb. She had me at page one'
Chris Cleave, author of Everyone Brave is Forgiven
'It's the artful pleating of this subtle, psychologically astute novel that sets it apart' DAILY MAIL
The kaleidoscopic story of one woman as seen through the eyes of those she has loved or been loved by.
Nine people illuminate one woman in the particular light of how they see her, each voice casting her from a new angle. Taking her from a lonely child in the classroom to a fierce woman weathering life's battles and triumphs, The Nine-Chambered Heart is a masterful portrait, as intimate as it is brave.
