The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Life seems good for Ellie despite the recent break-up from her boyfriend. On the way to Southwold, to the cottage she has recently inherited, she bumps against something on the road. Despite a vague sense of disquiet, Ellie is able to focus on the purpose of her visit: the art exhibition that she is hoping will launch her career, and the arrival of her friends coming to stay and support. However, the following day a radio report refuels her anxiety, and, determined to put her mind at rest, she makes a fateful decision. This is a really gripping read.

Synopsis

A Trick of the Mind by Penny Hancock

Driving down to the cottage in Southwold she's newly inherited from her Aunty May, Ellie senses she is on the edge of something new. The life she's always dreamed of living as a successful artist seems as though it is about to begin. So excited is she that she barely notices when the car bumps against something on the road. That evening Ellie hears a news flash on the radio. A man was seriously injured in a hit and run on the very road she was driving down that evening. Then Ellie remembers the thump she heard. Could she have been responsible for putting a man in hospital? Unable to hold the doubts at bay, she decides to visit the victim to lay her mind to rest, little knowing that the consequences of this decision will change her life forever.
