Last week during school half term, My daughter and I where stuck in the house as it poured with rain, driving each other crazy. I had the bright idea of taking her to a soft play centre we know, where she can go off and burn some energy for an hour or so, while I relax with a cuppa and a book. So we got ready and set off, only for me to realise whilst half way there I'd forgot my book. Arrrghh! The nearest shop was Morrisons, and I nipped in with the intention of just picking up a couple of magazines. I couldn't resist the book section though, and with the currant best sellers only £4.99, or 2 for £8 I decided it was better to just buy a couple of books. ... Read the complete review

Plot... Single mum Grace feels like she is drowning. Her 4 year old girl, Sylvie is a troubled child; prone to angry tantrums, unable to interact properly with children and seems utterly petrified of water.

The novel starts with a brief 1 page long vivid description of imagining how someone feels whilst drowning then it plunges into the lives of young single mum Grace and her troubled 3 year old daughter Sylvie. Rejected by her married lover Grace is ... Read the complete review

I was browsing the bookshelfs, looking for something a bit different to the usual boy meets girl romance saga and came across The Drowning Girl by Margaret Leroy. I read the blurb on the back, which drew me in, enough to read the first paragraph of the book - which is what I always do before I buy a book. I was hooked almost immediately and bought the book there and then. The basic story is about a little girl who remembers a past life. Single mum Grace is doing her best to bring up Sophie, her four-year old troubled little girl. Grace works as a florist whilst Sophie is at nursery, and despite still having feelings for the father of her child (who is married ... Read the complete review
