A Funeral for an Owl

(2013)
A novel by

 

Wingbeats that echo from the past.

One shocking event. Two teachers risk their careers to help a boy who has nothing. Three worlds intersect and connect, regardless of the rules.

Jim Stevens teaches history. Haunted by his own, he still believes everyone can learn from the past.

14-year-old Shamayal Thomas trusts no one. Not the family, not the gang. And at school, trusting people is forbidden.

The best way to avoid trouble, thinks Ayisha Emmanuelle, is to avoid confrontation. As an inner-city schoolteacher, she does a whole lot of avoidance. But history doesn't always repeat itself.

A powerful exploration of the ache of loss set in a landscape where broken people can heal each other.

"All the heartbreak of A Kestrel for a Knave (Kes) and then some. Imagine Billy Casper living in South London in the 1990s."

"'Jane reminds me of Margaret Atwood, in that all her books are very different and seem to be written in different voices. The quality and readability is consistent in all her works and I would heartily recommend this grittier tale of modern urban living." ~ Peter Snell, Bookseller
