April 2013 Book of the Month.

Romance, mystery and self-discovery are all in this poignant novel of one woman’s journey to Bali in search of closure and emotional healing after being involved in the infamous nightclub bombings of 2003. We think it’s perfect for fan’s of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love or Alex Garland’s The Beach.

If you like Ellen Sussman you might also like to read books by Lucy Dillon, Julia Stagg and Karen Swan.

Synopsis

The Paradise Guest House by Ellen Sussman

It starts as a trip to paradise. Sent on assignment to Bali, Jamie, an adventure guide, imagines spending weeks exploring the island's lush jungles and pristine white sand beaches. Yet three days after her arrival, she is caught in Bali's infamous nightclub bombings, which irreparably change her life and leave her with many unanswered questions. One year later, haunted by memories, Jamie returns to Bali seeking a sense of closure. Most of all, she hopes to find Gabe, the man who saved her from the attacks. She hasn't been able to forget his kindness - or the spark between them as he helped her heal. Checking into a cosy guest house for her stay, Jamie meets the kindly owner, who is coping with a painful past of his own, and a young boy who improbably becomes crucial to her search. Jamie has never shied away from a challenge, but a second chance with Gabe presents her with the biggest dilemma of all: whether she's ready to open her heart.
