We’re delighted to be sharing Laura’s thoughts on tour for Amanda Prowse’s new novel, The Coordinates of Loss, which is publishing today.
Paperback: 330 pages
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (25 Sept. 2018)
When Rachel Croft wakes up on her family’s boat in Bermuda, it’s to sunshine and yet another perfect day…until she goes to wake her seven-year-old son, Oscar. Because the worst thing imaginable has happened. He isn’t there.
In the dark and desperate days that follow, Rachel struggles to navigate her grief. And while her husband, James, wants them to face the tragedy together, Rachel feels that the life they once shared is over. Convinced that their happy marriage is now a sham, and unable to remain in the place where she lost her son, she goes home to Bristol alone.
Only when she starts receiving letters from Cee-Cee, her housekeeper in Bermuda, does light begin to return to Rachel’s soul. She and James both want to learn to live again—but is it too late for them to find a way through together?
Available to purchase in digital, paperback and audiobook formats.
Coordinates of Loss is the first novel that I have read by Amanda Prowse and I want to read more!
Rachel, the main protagonist wakes up on a gorgeous morning with her husband, James, on their stunning boat to discover their son has vanished. Living in Bermuda, a paradise as James and Rachel once thought.
Coordinates of Loss focuses mainly on Rachel as she struggles with her grief, however there is an emphasis on James’s emotions too.
Cee-Cee, their housemaid is my favourite character as she writes to Rachel to explain her life story and this provides an abundance of emotions.
Amanda Prowse’s writing style makes it easy to engage with the characters and there are several wonderful characters to fall in love with. A beautiful story based on tragedy.
I loved this book and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
