A new novel from CC founder Rosemary Randall.
It’s set in 2009, a period of intense climate activity and we hope that its twin themes of climate protest and psychotherapy might appeal to readers of this blog.
It's 2009 and in the
aftermath of the financial crash, critical climate talks are
heading for meltdown. Nineteen year old Clara Fortune steps from
adolescence into a life of climate protest. Simultaneously her
father Thomas breaks one of the sacrosanct boundaries of his
profession. As Thomas's colleague Esther Dunn struggles
desperately to dissuade him, her son Felix draws Clara deeper
into the world of radical climate action. Esther, haunted by the
transgressions and losses of her own past and distracted by
Felix's entanglement with both Clara and with increasingly
daring protest, finds the situation slipping beyond her control.
What does it mean to break the rules? Of nature? Of society? Of
one's faith? Of one's profession? In a rapidly heating world,
this psychologically astute tale raises questions for us all.
It's available from Amazon ,
£2.50 for the Kindle edition, £6.99 for the paperback.
