Her job, her family, her lover – which will she choose?

1997, TV journalist Elizabeth is pursuing a story of a child’s disappearance in the north London Hasidic community. In the wake of her father’s sudden death and her alcoholic mother’s increasing obsession with her childhood in wartime Hungary, she struggles to manage her job and her relationship. Then she gets a phone call to say that her mother has been arrested in Budapest.

Elizabeth is forced to confront the nature of motherhood, love and loss as she puts together the clues to her mother’s past and to the fate of the lost little girl.

 



Reviews


"A wonderfully warm, hilarious read, despite dark subject matter."
Saga Magazine


"highly original, a surprisingly gripping read, and a richly multi-layered story told from an unfamiliar cultural perspective that I thoroughly enjoyed."
Anne Williams, Being Anne


"An outstanding debut novel that deals with love and loss, whilst providing a thorough examination of what it is to be a mother, all set against a backdrop of a contemporary crime novel. With just a drop of dark humour also thrown in, Reparation appeals on multiple levels.
Chris Andrews, Buzz Magazine


"Reparation is an ambitious, crisply chronicles story... it deals with challenge, change and personal growth. "
Madeleine Kingsley, The Jewish Chronicle
