Product Description

Details

Patrick German has achieved all his life's ambitions: a lovely wife, a baby son and a prestigious job. So when, one day, he walks out on all he knows and loves, he is as perplexed as anyone. He runs away to become a primary school teacher in north Norfolk, where he is mesmerised by a ten-year-old girl in his class with an other-worldly authority. Patrick realises that the private, angst-ridden confession he set out to write is becoming something far more extraordinary: an eyewitness account of angelic life on earth. Olivia Fane writes with the fluid, faultless prose and sharp, questioning intelligence which defined her previous two novels, "Landing on Clouds" (winner of a Betty Trask Award) and "The Glorious Flight of Perdita Tree" (Maia, 2005).
