What if you became an outsider in your own life?
Jennifer Hughes doesn’t have an extraordinary life, but that doesn’t matter – she loves her family and enjoys her job as a teacher. In her eyes, her unextraordinary life is utterly perfect.
But then, in the blink of an eye, Jennifer finds herself cut off from everything she knew and loved, confined to a strange new world and forced to watch from a distance as her family and friends pick up the pieces.
Can Jennifer hold her perfect life together, even though she’s not living it herself?
I went through so many emotions reading this book. Having lost someone very close to me, I could relate to so many situations that were so beautifully described in this story. At times I was so choked up I couldn’t see through the tears and then something amazing would happen and I’d instantly have goosebumps. Such a compelling, emotionally charged book that really captures the reader from page one. Can’t wait to read more from this author!
Thought provoking and sensitively written.
Death is very subjective and relative to each individual person. How we cope with death depends on so many different factors.
Beyond Grey is a stunning novel, which explores how one family cope with the loss of a parent, and it is written from each members individual viewpoint, as well as Jennifer’s as she watches from limbo and attempts to influence her family toward healing and happiness.
Thought provoking and sensitively written, congratulations to the author for such a good debut novel.
