The Mountain in my Shoe (Paperback)Louise Beech (author)
- In stock online
On the night Bernadette finally has the courage to tell her domineering husband that she's leaving, he doesn't come home. Neither does Conor, the little boy she's befriended for the past five years.
Exquisitely written and deeply touching, The Mountain in My Shoe is both a gripping psychological thriller and a powerful and emotive examination of the meaning of family ... and just how far we're willing to go for the people we love.

`A rich, psychologically profound novel about overcoming adversity ... It's a masterpiece' Gill Paul
`A wonderful, nuanced book probing the damages wreaked by absence and neglect, while exploring the power of love and hope ... and what it means to be truly "home". It made me laugh and cry by turns. I loved it' Melissa Bailey
`An exquisite novel. Darkly compelling emotionally charged. And I LOVED it!' Jane Isaac
