A single phone call from halfway across the world is all it takes to bring her home . . . `Ellie, something bad has happened.'

Desperate to escape her `kid from the scrapyard' reputation, Ellie Rook has forged a new life for herself abroad, but tragedy strikes when her mother, Imelda, falls from a notorious waterfall.

Here, according to local legend, the warrior queen Finella jumped to her death after killing a king. In the wake of her mother's disappearance, Ellie is forced to confront some disturbing truths about the family she left behind and the woman she has become.

Can a long-dead queen hold the key to Ellie's survival? And how far will she go to right a wrong?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Twists, turns and well-written pace. Ireland is good at weaving Celtic mythology into a novel which otherwise deals with very modern themes'

* Scotsman *

'Ireland is fast becoming an exciting new voice in the psychological thriller genre. Her latest offering is darkly gothic and plunges us into the world of Ellie Rook'

* Sunday Post *

'Sandra Ireland's novels speak to me, darkly mesmerising with throbbing attitude and heart, they are also just that little bit different ... The Unmaking of Ellie Rook with a gorgeous blend of folklore and the most thought provoking and modern of times, is a fabulous read'

“Read it and decide for yourself....”

“The story says Finella may have survived the fall, that she was washed into the sea and picked up by a boat.”

“An engaging and deeply moving character study in a fully realised setting”

This is a truly magical novel that I would defy anyone reading it not to be moved by. How far can you run to get away from yourself?

No matter where in the world you go(and in Ellie's case it's Vietnam),... More
