The Girl in the Red Coat

Listening to Kate Hamer read extracts from her debut novel this evening, sent shivers down my spine. I’m not a crime/thriller reader, but I couldn’t wait to buy ‘The Girl in the Red Coat’ by this curious writer.

     What made her write a book about child abduction?

     ‘It’s just fiction, said Kate, ‘a story about the relationship between a mother and her eight year daughter and the pain of separation.’

     And so, despite the depth of this emotional and painful story, I guess the crux of this tale can be found lurking on the surface of every page I am about to read.

     Well done Cover to Cover in Mumbles, for bringing such talented writer’s to our library and thank you Kate for coming to see us on such a wild night.
