The Sudden Appearance of Hope (Paperback)Claire North (author)
- In stock
My name is Hope Arden. I am the girl the world forgets.
It started when I was sixteen years old. A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A friend who looks at me and sees a stranger. No matter what I do, the words I say, the crimes I commit - you will never remember who I am.
That makes my life tricky. It also makes me dangerous ...
The Sudden Appearance of Hope is the tale of a girl no one remembers, yet her story will stay with you for ever.
Claire North is the pen name of author Catherine Webb who also writes as Kate Griffin. She is best-known for her time-shifting novel of a life lived and re-lived, The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August which was selected for The Waterstones Book Club.
