‘Was the post-break-up adventure I’d embarked upon going to end in the loneliest of deaths in the middle of nowhere? Was my determination finally to live life on my own terms going to kill me as surely as Isadora Duncan’s scarf killed her?’ Sandy Locksmith
Emerging from a fever-induced fantasy of the beginning of the world Sandy faces a shocking reality. She’s held captive by a vagrant, imprisoned in a medieval citadel cradled deep within an empty valley in rural France, and is subjected to terrifying sexual assaults. It’s the middle of a freezing December. How did she end up in such a hopeless position and what can it take to transform it? Sandy is certain that somewhere among all the unusual experiences she’s had over the previous month lies the key to her freedom. We journey back with her to the middle of November. In her late forties, post menopausal and childless Sandy has been trying to ‘create her own reality’ for months…
The first novel in the ‘Waking The Lions’ trilogy.
