After the Fall

(2012)
A novel by

 
 
We begin in the UK when Martha is telling her father and sister that she, her husband Kit, her teenage daughter and young twin sons, are all emigrating to New Zealand 'to give the kids a better life' but really it's a move driven by Kit - to save him from sinking into a black depression following the bankrupting of his business.

Sacha, the daughter, usually such a content girl, is the only one in the family who definitely doesn't want to leave her friends, her extended family, her school and her new boyfriend to move across the world. And it's Sacha for whom the move goes terribly badly - worse than could be imagined.

Charity writes richly and warmly of family and relationships; but she's also adept at exploring the dark places in a similar vein to Jodi Picoult.

It's great stuff - intelligent, gripping and insightful into people and situations. Very much like Charity herself.
