The Day I Died

(2009)
A novel by

 
It's 4am, London and a young woman comes to amidst sirens and screams - the result of a bomb that has left utter carnage in its wake. Wearing the remains of a tattered black dress and wrapped in a filthy blanket, she is utterly unaware of where - and more importantly - who she is. Disorientated by overwhelming feelings of shame and guilt, the woman picks up an abandoned wallet from the gutter and, following her instincts, flees the scene. Escaping on a bus into a remote country village, she adopts the name 'Jo' in place of the identity that still eludes her. Jo quickly builds herself a new life in the country, finding a job and settling into a new community. But fragmented pieces of her past keep encroaching on her present - from the realisation that she is an alcoholic, to a chance meeting with a man that triggers flashbacks - and Jo is forced to solve the mystery of her own identity.But as she pieces together her past - and in doing so uncovers some shocking secrets about her old life - can Jo face the truth of who she is really is? Dark, disturbing and utterly enthralling women's fiction from a stunning new UK talent.
