The Memory Prisoner

The Memory Prisoner

(2000)
A novel by

 
For thirteen years Maddie Palmer has sat by the window, never leaving the house, getting the news of the day from her younger brother, Keith. For thirteen years she has buried her memories-of the dark fortress of the Town Library, which casts its long shadow over Pridebridge, and what happened there so long ago.

But when Keith is forced to work in the secret cavern of the library, Maddie must leave her familiar prison behind-or risk losing her brother for good.

Thomas Bloor's first novel, reminiscent of Louis Sachar's Holes and Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, is at once very funny and strangely poignant, as tantalizing and mysterious as Maddie herself.
