About the Author:
Susan Harpham was born in North Wales but moved around the country with her parents and sister until she settled in South Yorkshire when she was six years old. She has worked as an Administrator for most of her life though she did work for some years as a Technology Assistant in a Systems Department. Sue and her husband Martin live in a village near Sheffield. They have two sons. She started writing this novel thirty years ago but abandoned it for a while simply because life got in the way but ten years ago she picked it up again and started developing the detail. She has always scribbled stories or poems, but this novel became a mission that she needed to complete, as she came to realise that it kept her grounded and sane in a somewhat turbulent world.
Excerpt from the book:
“’Ali, where is Tommy?’
He looked at her steadily for a few seconds and then decided he had to tell her the truth.
‘I’m sorry, my dear, I really don’t know. I haven’t seen him since he left your room this morning.’
‘You’re worried about him, aren’t you?’
‘I know it’s my fault but you must know now how very sorry I am. Do you think he might have gone to the Gorge?’
‘It is possible, Ocean. I thought that too and I believe what he has taken with him suggests just that.’
‘He’s not gone for good then? I mean if he’s left some of his possessions behind he must be coming back.’
‘Yes, I think you’re right.’
Ali knew he was being evasive. A silence developed as both sat with their own thoughts. All of a sudden Ocean thought of something. She felt inside the pocket of the cardigan she was wearing and brought out a beautiful embroidered handkerchief and as she looked at it, she smiled as if remembering something before then glancing across to Ali. He was startled to see a mischievous sparkle in her eye and had to admit it was beautiful and, he realised, how much he had missed it, but hadn’t realised quite how much.”
