It's the other baby I think about most, the one Gran spoke of the day I told her I was pregnant. I used to picture my own baby, her chalky face round as a clock, but now there's this other one. Aggie is struggling to make sense of her life, but she's determined to make sense of her gran's life, even if everyone else thinks she should be concentrating on other things, like her faltering marriage. Back in the family home grandmother Peggy nests at the top of the house, rarely leaving her room. She says she's making her way to heaven, but when Aggie moves in again she soon realises that things are far from heavenly in the Coppella household. Snake Road is a tale of loss and hope. Told through the unblinking eye of Aggie, a family history is revealed that breaks and heals in equal measure. Stepping into difficult emotional terrain, Sue Peebles has written a heartbreaking novel filled with astonishing empathy, gentleness, wit and beauty.
