'Dark and compelling, a slow-motion collapse; I read it in 24 hours with my heart in my mouth. So good!' Julie Cohen, author of Together

Everyone knows what Cornelia did all those years ago.
But no one knows what she will do next.


Cornelia Blackwood lives a quiet life. When she goes to the corner shop to buy milk, people whisper behind her back.

Her one constant, her rock, is her husband. But when he doesn't come home from a work conference, she is left alone to try to pick up the pieces. And before long, the secret he has hidden from her for all these years is laid bare.

From a supremely talented storyteller, The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood is a powerful novel of motherhood, loss and loneliness and how we can make damaging choices when pushed to our emotional edge.

“A Powerful and Heartbreaking Exploration of Grief”

I was first drawn to this novel by its stunning cover art. I love corvids and rather hoped this cover indicated that these birds would play a role. They do and its opening paragraph has a cheeky crow walking into... More
