Jane Davis I Stopped Time
What if the villain of your childhood turned out to be someone really rather extraordinary? Disgraced politician Sir James Hastings is resigned to living out his retirement in a secluded village in the Surrey Hills. He is unmoved when he learns his mother has died at the age of 108. In his mind, he buried her when she abandoned him as a child. Brought up by his father, a charismatic war-hero turned racing driver, the young James, torn between self-blame and longing, eventually dismissed her. Now he inherits her life's work - an incredible photography collection spanning six decades - and is forced to confront the realization that his version of the past isn't even half the story. Award-winning author Jane Davis presents a family that is beautifully flawed, brimming with affection, and inimitably human. Perfect for fans of Tracy Chevalier, Audrey Niffenegger and Ali Smith. 'A perfectly written book in which the author never puts a foot wrong.' Author, John Lynch Hailed by The Bookseller as 'One to Watch', Jane Davis writes thought-provoking literary page turners with a strong commercial edge. Her first novel "Half-Truths and White Lies", won a national award established with the aim of finding 'the next Joanne Harris'. Davis lives in Carshalton, Surrey.
