Ghostbird

GHOSTBIRD was published on 17th March 2016. I am honoured to have been picked up by Honno, the Welsh Women’s Press. This small, dynamic press is a jewel in Wales’ publishing crown.

Charming, quirky, magical’  Joanne Harris

Lovekin’s prose is full of beautifully strange poetry’ Rebecca Mascull

‘Someone needs to be forgiven, someone needs to forgive.’

GHOSTBIRD concerns Cadi Hopkins, a fourteen-year-old girl who lives in a remote village in Wales. Cadi wants answers her emotionally distant mother, Violet refuses to disclose. Lonely and surrounded by ambiguity, she is determined to uncover the mystery surrounding the deaths of her father and her little sister, both of whom died before she was born.

Caught in the middle is Cadi’s aunt, Lili the witch woman.

In a world of hauntings and magic, in a small village where it rains every day throughout the month of August, the secrets and the ghosts are finally waking up, and none of the Hopkins women will be able to escape them.

If Lili won’t use her magic to make Violet talk, can Cadi conjure some of her own?

In GHOSTBIRD you will find sadness and love; a small ghost, a little knitting, a lot of birds and a good deal of rain. And the Welsh myth of Blodeuwedd – like the rain – is a thread running through the story.

You can buy the book in bookshops, from Honno  & on Amazon.
