Beth Teller died in a car accident, but she hasn’t moved on, she stays with her policeman father as he makes his way through the grief of her death. When he is called to investigate a fire in a small town, they meet Isobel Catching, a witness who tells a story of monsters and other-places.
I loved this book so much – I read it in a single sitting, and then read it again. It’s beautiful and painful and wonderful. Initially, it took me a few attempts to get into the Catching sections, to find how to read the poetry. But it left me in tears, a real heartbreak of beauty and pain.
