A photograph, a wish, a newspaper article, an aunt’s visit and one lonely girl. Child of the seventies, Imogen lives with her aloof father at Loraligh Mill on the edge of the Yorkshire moors. She longs to know who her mother is and what happened to her, but a photograph of baby Imogen on her mother’s lap provides the only evidence of her existence. Housekeeper Mrs Gayle takes care of the child as best she can, but has a family of her own. Imogen worships older teenager, Mark, who works at the mill. They are river children, who make-believe and explore the natural world around them, until one day a woman appears at the gate. A cascade of truths unravel one by one, revealing the mill’s tragic past and throwing Imogen into turmoil. She is not who she thought she was. Love and hate can be one and the same. Told through Imogen’s eyes, Under an Angry Sky is an easy-read that will touch your heart.About the Author:
