What She Left
Allen & Unwin, 400 pages, €12.95 On the face of it, Helen has it all: beautiful, accomplished, talented and the parent that others envy in her children’s school.
But one day, she disappears. She wasn’t abducted or killed, but has chosen to walk out of her life, leaving husband Sam and her young family behind. South African writer Fiore looks at what may have driven Helen to take such drastic action and zeroes in on Sam and his attempts to locate her. What role has he to play in her disappearance and what will happen if he eventually finds her?
Fiore asks questions about marriage, stability and why some people risk losing it all in order to start all over again.
