My third book, The Stolen Girl, is coming soon!

Since ‘The Forgotten Daughter’ was published, I have been inundated with messages asking when my next book is due and what it is about. Well, now I can tell you. My third book, ‘The Stolen Girl’ will be published on the 12th of September! Not long to wait at all! And this is what it is about:

How far would YOU go to protect your child? A mother’s love. A long-buried secret. The search for the truth.

‘Your mother has been arrested. She stole you.’
For as long as thirteen-year-old Diya can remember, it’s always been just her and her mum, Vani. Despite never staying in one place long enough to call it home, with her mother by her side, Diya has never needed anyone else. Then, in an instant, Diya’s fragile world is shattered. Her mother is arrested, accused of abducting Diya when she was a baby…

Vani has spent a lifetime looking over her shoulder, determined to make the best possible life for her daughter. Now she must fight for her child, re-opening the door to her childhood in India and the woman who was once as close to her as a sister.

Told through the eyes of Diya, Vani and Aarti, this is a heart-breaking story of friendship and betrayal, love and motherhood, which asks the question; how far would you go to protect your only child?

Here’s what one of the initial reviewers, Felicity Gibson, has to say:

“Filled with raw emotion and voluptuous imagery. The sorrow, the hope, the horror and sadness spill over each page. The themes of loss, broken hearts, disappointment, hope and shock are woven throughout with overwhelming personification and powerful words. Told through the eyes of Diya, Vani and Aarti, a chapter is devoted to each character. The tension is huge, and the reader is spellbound. A great book. I award it 5 stars.”
