* "A tour-de-force of imaginative fiction... lyrically written, if often harrowing, tale of surprising passion." Huffington Post * unique insight into the life of Rudyard Kipling, one of the most influential literary figures of the twentieth century. * Explores the truth about Alice "Trix" Kipling, delving into the heart of the relationship between a difficult brother and his troubled sister. Mary Hamer has unearthed the truth about Alice Kipling, known to her family affectionately as Trix. In this fictionalised account of their lives, the author goes to the heart of the relationship between a difficult brother and his troubled sister and explores how their early lives shaped the very different people they were later to become. Set against a lavish backdrop of colonial India, austere Edwardian England and Vermont, USA, New England, Kipling & Trix provides a unique insight into the life of one of the most influential literary figures of the 20th century; one whose private life was obsessively well-guarded. An incredible and theatrical tale, Hamer's debut novel explores the truth about Alice Kipling, delving into the heart of the relationship between a difficult brother and his troubled sister.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A historical delight." Waterstones "Hamer's books opens up the complex world of the Kiplings, moving between continents and momentous world events." Daily Mail "Although based closely on historical fact, Kipling and Trix is a tour-de-force of imaginative fiction as well as a lyrically written, if often harrowing, tale of surprising passion." Gina Berreca, The Huffington Post
