I am delighted to be one of three blogs kicking off Katharine Johnson’s The Silence blog tour! 🙂
Many thanks to Emma Mitchell for the opportunity to take part and to Katharine Johnson for providing her guest post.
A Day In The Life…..
…..of your main character!
My main character is Abby. She appears in the novel as a child and an adult. If it’s ok I’ll let her speak:
My typical day involves getting my two little girls ready for school – they’re in reception and Year One – and dropping them at the before-school club at 8 a.m. before going into the surgery where I work as a GP. The surgery opens at 8.30 a.m. and it’s pretty full-on. The morning goes really quickly as there are so many patients to see. It’s hard making sure everyone gets the time and attention they need. I also have to fit in a couple of visits to patients who can’t make it into the surgery.
Lunch is usually a sandwich at my desk and a chance to catch up on admin, such as writing referral letters, checking on test results and checking emails. In the afternoon, I see more patients and usually stay late to catch up on paperwork.
I pick up the girls from their after-school clubs or the childminder. Their bath and bedtime is very precious to me. James usually gets in late after a day in London and we catch up on each other’s day over a glass of wine.
Although I only work three days a week I need my days off to keep up with the rest of the paperwork.
Publisher: Crooked Cat Books (8th June 2017)
A gripping tale of secrets and lies remembered long after the last page.â€ â€“ Amanda James, author of Behind the Lie.
When human remains are discovered in the grounds of an idyllic Tuscan holiday home she is forced to confront the memories she has suppressed until now and relive the summer she spent at the villa in 1992. A summer that ended in tragedy. The nearer she gets to the truth the closer she comes to losing her sanity.
In order to hold onto the people she loves most, she must make sure they never discover what she did. But the reappearance of someone else from that summer threatens to blow her secret wide open.
