Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Michaela and colleagues do a parachute jump for charity. Michaela is a little sceptical but does eventually jump. Sailing through a glorious, clear blue sky she suddenly lands in darkness … six years later. As you might imagine, she and her friends and family have a problem coming to terms with this. The police believe she had been abducted. One of the lovely things for me about this book is the time zone but I won’t explain what I mean; I just enjoyed the way it was handled.

Comparison: Cecelia Ahern, Ben Sherwood, Roslyn Domingue.

Synopsis

Down to Earth by Melanie Rose

When Michaela Anderson signs up for a parachute jump she gets more than a case of vertigo! Suffering last-minute panic, Michaela's three colleagues go first. But just as she takes her leap of faith, an almighty gale blows up from nowhere. When she returns to the ground, she finds the airfield deserted, her car gone and the seasons mysteriously changed. Posters nearby proclaim Michaela to have been missing for the last six and a half years! But Michaela is determined to find out the truth. Was she kidnapped? Is she now suffering amnesia, or has something even more extraordinary occurred? With the help of handsome pilot Matt, Michaela sets out to find the truth. And what she discovers rocks everything she has ever believed in to the core! A magical tale that will enchant and enthral fans of Cecelia Ahern and Sophie Kinsella.

About the Author

Melanie Rose was an avid reader from an early age and found herself looking at the world around her and wondering 'what if?' She began writing as a teenager, progressing to short stories and articles for magazines and newspapers. She trained as a nursery nurse and later became a play therapist on the children's ward at the Royal Marsden Hospital, continuing to write in her spare time. She self-published her first novel which was voted one of the favourite reads of the year by listeners of Radio 4's Open Book programme. She now lives in Surrey with her husband and four sons, who, along with many of the children she has cared for, provide much inspiration for her books.
