Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A light, easy read of a boating accident in Cornwall where the body was never found. The lad, Joey, was twenty and went to Cornwall with a good chum, Danny, to sail. They had a row and Joey went out on his own, never to return. Now, five years later, his mum and Danny return to bury ghosts, only mum can feel Joey’s spirit and goes to a ‘charmer’ to help her find him. The ending is nice and neat, as one would expect only with a small added twist.

Synopsis

I Do Not Sleep by Judy Finnigan

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there; I do not sleep. Five years ago, Molly Gabriel lost her 20-year-old son, Joey, to a terrible sailing accident. His empty boat was found washed ashore on the rocks - but his body was never found. Now, Molly has returned to the sands of Cornwall haunted by his disappearance, unable to accept he is gone. Joey was an experienced sailor and died on a calm sea - things just don't add up and Molly cannot let it go. Desperate for answers she turns to Joey's best friend, Ben, to go back to what really happened that day ...Unputdownable and wonderfully moving, this is a story of the enduring power of a mother's love - the second novel from broadcaster, journalist and Book Club champion, Judy Finnigan.

Reviews

With her second novel, TV presenter and book club founder Judy Finnigan deserves to be taken seriously as a writer. I DO NOT SLEEP is a tense atmospheric story about a mother who refuses to accept her son is dead Good Housekeeping The emotional ending had us in tears Bella This haunting story of love, loss and family life will draw you in and keep you reading to the last page Daily Express There's plenty of emotion in this story... Set in Cornwall, there is melodrama and mysticism and a strong sense of place. Sunday Mirror Judy Finnigan's Cornwall has echoes of du Marurier... (and) is as much a homage to her adopted home of Cornwall as it is a tale of the imponderable - a mother's grief for her lost son... A cracking read Irish Independent A moving story of grief, loss and a mother's unbreakable bond with her child Woman & Home ...always heartfelt...this mystical story has a moving message Sunday Express I enjoyed Eloise, Finnigan's debut - and this is even better... full of love, spirituality and redemption, which manages to be both melancholy and feel-good at the same time. Daily Mail This is a haunting tale of mother's enduring love, with echoes of Daphne du Maurier. Woman
