SHORTLISTED FOR BEST CRIME NOVEL in the 2018 NGAIO MARSH AWARDS FOR CRIME FICTION
Cassy smiled, blew them a kiss. 'See you in September,' she said. It was a throwaway line. Just words uttered casually by a young woman in a hurry. And then she'd gone.
It was supposed to be a short trip-a break in New Zealand before her best friend's wedding. But when Cassy waved goodbye to her parents, they never dreamed that it would be years before they'd see her again.
Having broken up with her boyfriend, Cassy accepts an invitation to stay in an idyllic farming collective. Overcome by the peace and beauty of the valley and swept up in the charisma of Justin, the community's leader, Cassy becomes convinced that she has to stay.
As Cassy becomes more and more entrenched in the group's rituals and beliefs, her frantic parents fight to bring her home-before Justin's prophesied Last Day can come to pass.
A powerful story of family, faith and finding yourself, See You in September is an unputdownable new novel from this hugely compelling author.
After reading a review by an Australian blogger who gave this a rating of 9/10 I thought I couldn’t really go wrong, could I? This book is realsitically written it takes your breath away & plowing on to the end to find out exacylt what happens. I just love novels that makes you question life, people’s characters, human frailty, broken families, born leaders & crackpots, depending on your thoughts & ideas. This story could happen to anyone anywhere, destroy families, make one question all the time & wonder fi that was you. An amazing read & now looking to follow this author.
See you in September
This is a great story about how one decision can change not only your life but also have a profound effect on the people around you. Cassy is a young girl having the adventure of a lifetime when her life takes a dramatic change. She realises she may be pregnant, which leads to her and her boyfriend breaking up, which leads to her accepting a lift from a group of people in a van, which leads to her staying at Gethsemane. The psychology of a cult is an underlying theme in this book and shows how even intelligent people can fall victim to a charismatic leader.An enjoyable book.
