Find Me Falling
She bought a house where you can hear the sea, murmuring on the edge of consciousness…
Bonnie, a traumatised concert pianist, finds refuge at the edge of England, in a cliff-top house haunted by memories and broken dreams. When Dominic, a road sweeper who is visited by neurological hauntings of his own, gives Bonnie a ring he finds on the beach, elemental forces are unleashed that neither is able to control.
‘The beautiful, vibrating prose pulls the reader into the magical shifting universe and doesn’t let go until the very end.’
SOPHIE VAN LLEWYN
‘Marshall’s evocation of eerie alternate realities stays with the reader long after the last page is turned.’
DR SALLIE BAXENDALE, Consultant Neuropsychologist, UCL London
