    If we create a story in our mind and stick to it long enough it becomes our truth But what if that truth is challenged How deep can memories be buried What are the ramifications of another s truth John Hyde leaves his neat London life in search of truth in South Africa s Eastern Cape The reader is swept away on a turbulent stream of consciousness and left adrift with thoughts on child psychology, family dynamics, truth and forgiveness It s a gripping, thought provoking read written in sharp star [...]

    I ended up skimming through the book because frankly I found the style too mannered, too self conscious Alastair Bruce could take some tips from Margaret Mahy s excellent Memory I also found it unbelievable that parents could handle a tragedy that badly And, that an eight year old could behave as the protagonist did A disappointing read, I m afraid.
